Honeymoon murder suspect to be extradited to face trial in South Africa.

A MAGISTRATE has ruled that Shrien Dewani, who is suspected of killing his wife on their honeymoon, should be extradited to South Africa to face trial.

A judge has ruled Shrien Dewani should stand trial in South Africa.




Chief Magistrate Howard Riddle told Westminster Magistrates' Court that the 33-year-old businessman should return to the country, despite arguments by his defence team that he could suffer setbacks in his mental health if sent back now.

They argued that the decision should be delayed by six months.

District Judge Riddle said: "It is not in question that Shrien Dewani will be returned to South Africa. The treating clinicians continue to state that Mr Dewani will recover.

"There has been recovery, but it has been slow. It may be a long time before Mr Dewani is fit to plead, but he may be closer to that point.

"It is not impossible that if returned now, then after a reasonable period of further treatment and assessment he will be found fit to plead and a trial can take place."

Dewani has undergone treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and depression since his wife's death.

Dewani is suspected of ordering the killing of his new wife Anni, 28, who was shot as the couple travelled in a taxi on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010.
So far three men have been convicted over Mrs Dewani's death.

Last year South African Xolile Mngeni was convicted of premeditated murder for shooting her.

Prosecutors claimed that he was a hitman hired by Dewani to kill his wife, something that Dewani has consistently denied.

Nay... surely this can't be the same type of sham, bogus, simulated PTSD that Jodi Arias suffered from, can it ?  >@@(*&) 8-)(--)

Yes another one of these cases where Human Rights become a major feature.

"He might be raped and get AIDS in a South African prison."  I thought the whole point of prison was the gay sex and "hunt the soap in the showers?"

Funny "The Lawyers" do not care about Anni's Human Rights but then she was only a woman and she is dead now so she can be safely ignored.

Strange case, in most car-jackings the man is instantly robbed and killed and the woman is raped and butchered later and the car stolen.  In this case the man is released and the woman is killed without being raped and the car was not stolen.
