The trial of Oscar Pistorius, accused of killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, reconvenes its third day of the hearing – see yesterday’s trial-.
An ad published in England and Ireland invites to vote on the outcome of the trial!
More than 100,000 people have signed a petition on Tuesday calling for the withdrawal of such advertising deemed “offensive” edited by Paddy Power.
It reads: “It’s Oscar’s time. Earn money if he get away free. We will refund all your lost in the trial of Oscar Pistorius if he is declared innocent.”
The British regulatory agency of publicity has received 46 complaints about this campaign.
Paddy Power refuses to yield: “We do not intend to withdraw the bet and this advertising. There is nothing new to wager on the outcome of a trial followed avidly by the public. Such as surveys, our bets reflect this interest.”
