Dewani Uncle Criticises BBC Over Documentary
« on: September 15, 2013, 12:21:18 AM »
A programme casting doubt on the case against a man accused of murdering his wife has angered the family of his alleged victim.



Honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani.


The uncle of murdered honeymooner Anni Dewani has accused documentary makers of interfering in the justice system ahead of a programme raising questions about the case against her alleged killer.

Ashok Hindocha, the uncle of Anni Dewani who was killed in South Africa in November 2010, said it is up for a court to look at allegations against her former husband Shrien.

He is accused of ordering the murder of his new bride, who was shot in the neck as the couple travelled in a taxi in the outskirts of Cape Town.

A team from BBC series Panorama has obtained police files concerning the prosecution case against Shrien Dewani and has asked forensic experts to examine them.

A BBC spokesman said the experts' findings have exposed "fundamental failings" in the police investigation, and it is in the public interest for them to be aired.

A malicious prosecution for a crime which never existed. An exposť of egregious malfeasance by public officials.
Indeed, the truth never changes with the passage of time.

It is a story in the public interest that they can get ratings with and they know it. The bigger question is why they were allowed near the evidence that will be used in the prosecution?  Panorama used to be the standard-bearer of journalistic integrity. Sadly those days are long gone. They did an utterly dishonest programme on the Lynette White Inquiry last year.

Exactly!

Unfortunately for unread people the BBC and some other channels are considered God......if its on there must be true..... truth is so much different! panorama has definiitely gone down the pan  big time for a few years now, they should rename themselves propagama

The good old BeeB....What a surprise!!!

The BBC should avoid making documentaries where they take sides. Neutrality was supposed to be one of their missions.
