let's bring in saima mohsin. she's been monitoring these developments live from kuala lumpur. saima, at last, people might get a look at this. >> reporter: yeah, john, you know, it's taken us some time to get to this point, hasn't it? we've been pressing and pushing and making those calls, and so, too, of course, have the family members of those aboard flight mh-370. finally, late monday night here in kuala lumpur, we got a statement from the acting transportation minister, hishammuddin bin hussein. he's the man who often holds these press conferences saying that he has instructed the departments of civil aviation to work with inmarsat. that's the satellite data company that first came forward with this data. to release it. this morning here in kuala lumpur, we've had another statement saying, yes, we have now started working on this. and what they're doing, john, is providing two sets of information, really. what they're going to do is provide the raw data, and alongside it, kind of like an instruction manual, if you like,
1:24 am
of how to read that data. but we're not really sure if the families of the passengers on mh-370 are going to be satisfied with that, because what they're saying is they want more data than just that raw data. they want data going way back, they want data from other planes. so, it's yet to see if that is exactly what they wanted. and crucially, they want this investigated by another independent body, and that, john, is because there is just so much suspicion now around flight mh-370, suspicion including some family members tell me, whether or not the plane really did end its journey in the southern indian ocean. john? >> so many questions, including why and how this data has been released. certainly, they'll want to take new developments just in a close look at it to make sure from south africa. they have all of it when it does oscar pistorius back in court this morning, not for more come out. saima mohsin in kuala lumpur. grueling testimony, but to find out when he will begin his 30 thank you so much. coming up, your kids days of psychiatric evaluation probably have one of these attached to their bike helmets. ordered by the judge after a it's gopro. you know little gopro? psychiatrist testified that the it's going public. former olympian is a danger to business news after the break. every day, people fall.
1:25 am
society. our robyn curnow tracking the from a simple misstep, to tripping over a rug, developments live from pretoria. to just losing their balance. what have we learned, robyn? and not being able to get up from a fall can have >> reporter: hi, there. serious, lifetime consequences. a short court appearance by being prepared is important. oscar pistorius, the judge simply saying she orders him to philips lifeline with autoalert is more than go for this observation starting just a medical alert button. next week, no longer than 30 it's an advanced fall detection system designed days. to get you help quickly. essentially, she's postponed the court until the 30th of june, if you fall and you're unable to push your button, the fall detection technology within when a panel of experts is autoalert can trigger the button to automatically likely then to deliver their place a call for help. findings for the court. our us-based staff will make sure you get the help what is interesting about this you need right away. this is philips lifeline. order is that normally when somebody is sent off, we received a fall-detected signal. essentially, for psychiatric do you need help? observation, they're under call now about philips lifeline with autoalert, the only button with philips' advanced fall lockdown, they're locked in detection technology. these maximum security we'll send you this free information kit about the institutions. well, oscar pistorius is being importance of getting help quickly, allowed to go through this process as an out-patient, should you happen to fall. when i fell, i couldn't press the button. clocking in at 9:00 a.m. in the morning, allowed to leave by 4:00 p.m., has his weekends i blacked out. free. a psychiatrist, psychologist and so having lifeline with autoalert i've spoken to say this is really saved me. highly unusual, but of course, if they don't push the button, this case is not very unususual. they're not able to push the button,
1:26 am
it takes over and gets them the help that they need. i think the justice department multiple sensors inside autoalert can recognize trying to balance the needs of the differences between your everyday justice but the interests in movements and a fall. this domestically, so if a fall does happen, and you're unable to push internationally and also the your button, autoalert can detect it and need for south africans to get this over and done with. automatically place a call for help. they want this wrapped up soon. autoalert is comfortable yet discreet, so you can wear it at all times. >> interesting. an example of what some might and because it's waterproof, see as generous treatment of you can even wear it in the shower or bathtub pistorius during this entire trial process. where many serious falls happen. any sense of who this over seven million people have benefitted from psychiatric evaluation period the lifeline service. benefits, the prosecution or the no wonder it's recommended by over 100,000 defense? is there one side that was pushing for it more than another? healthcare professionals nationwide. now is the time to be prepared. >> reporter: it's very difficult, and i suppose it sooner or later, everyone falls. depends on the eventual make sure you have autoalert findings. what was clear when i was in before it happens. court this morning, it took a if you or someone you love would like information while for proceedings to start, so i watched the body language about philips lifeline with autoalert, of everybody, and there was call now for your free information kit and ask quite a huge sense of about free activation when you order. relaxation, a lot of joking and laughing between oscar pistorius and his legal team. also, the state sort of chitchatting amongst themselves. there wasn't this earnestness or seriousness or anxiety on either side. so, i think both sides seem to
1:27 am
be thinking that this is necessary. basically, what has to be done is this panel of experts either has to disagree or agree with the defense's psychiatric testimony that oscar pistorius has this anxiety disorder, which might have really implicated or give some sort of impulse into why he acted like he did the night he shot and killed reeva steenkamp. so, that is essentially what is at stake. >> and lastly, if they do agree with that notion that he has this condition, then the defense would be able to suggest that he's not guilty -- in the u.s., it would be not guilty by reason of insanity. >> reporter: well, i think that sort of depends on how much they agree with the psychiatrist. if they say, listen, he's not criminally responsible for his actions, there is an agreement that he's insane, absolutely, not guilty. but then he will be sent off to an institution indefinitely until he gets better. i think the more likely things we're probably either going to
1:28 am
see is them disagreeing, saying, listen, he doesn't have an anxiety disorder, you know, it's overblown. he acted with intent, with responsibility, he knew what he was doing, or they agree that the fact that he's a double amputee, that he's vulnerable, these life experiences of having an amputation, of the pressure of his family, pretending that nothing was wrong with him did have some impact in the way he felt fearful at night, and that's maybe why he acted like he did. so, i think essentially, it might be a mitigating circumstance, particularly when it perhaps comes to sentencing or the judge's decision, if they agree with his psychiatrist. if they disagree with his psychiatrist, well, that just downgrades her evidence and they will then treat him perhaps from a legal point of view as any reasonable man. >> just another twist in this curious, curious case. all right, robyn curnow for us in pretoria. thank you very much. >> it was the defense who kept bringing it up, which is now why they have to go and follow through with the evaluation. all right, happening now, critical primary elections across the country. today's results, they could
