London - The family of Anni Dewani have backed plans to televise the trial of Shrien Dewani in South Africa.

Anni’s father Vinod Hindocha said: “She was my daughter, certainly, but since she was shot she has become the daughter of the world.

“I have been asked if I have any objection and my answer is that I do no…

“Judging by the thousands of letters from across the world we have received from people we have never met, there is a great amount of interest.”

Showing Tuesday’s hearing when Dewani appears to be formally charged - and any resulting hearings - on TV is a decision for the judge. The case could rival the media sensation of the ongoing murder trial of Oscar Pistorius for shooting his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
