Honeymoon ‘killer’ needs calm
A MAN wanted in South Africa for the honeymoon murder of his wife needs 12 months to recover from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder before being able to deal with the extradition process, a court has heard.
Businessman Shrien Dewani, 32, accused of arranging the contract killing of his wife Anni in Cape Town in 2010, is under medical care after being sectioned and deemed a suicide risk.
After many hearings, the case returned to Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday, where Dewani’s barrister said her client and he needed “a period of calm”.
The Chief Magistrate adjourned the hearing to September 18 for a psychiatrist to examine Dewani ( right), who has consistently denied the allegations against him.
