Judgment on Dewani extradition due

Comment on this story
IOL dewani afp oct 22 AFP Murder accused Shrien Dewani could be returned to South Africa in 28 days after losing his latest and most important legal case against extradition in London.

Cape Town - A UK court is on Friday expected to hand down judgment on whether or not honeymoon murder accused Shrien Dewani should be extradited to South Africa.

He is accused of masterminding the murder of his wife, Anni, in Khayelitsha on November 13, 2010 and is the only one of four suspects who has not been sentenced.

In July, a British court dismissed an initial appeal by Dewani, based on mental health grounds, against an extradition order. He appealed again. The court is expected to hand down judgment on this on Friday.
