Johannesburg - The extradition case against murder accused Shrien Dewani was expected to resume in the UK on Tuesday.
About two months ago, the Westminster Crown Court ruled that Dewani must be extradited to South Africa, but he appealed.
It was expected to be heard on Tuesday whether the new application will be allowed.
A previous extradition order for Dewani had been delayed because he was certified mentally ill.
Dewani is accused of masterminding his wife Anni’s murder in Cape Town on November 13, 2010.
The case made headlines again last month when the UK channel BBC One aired a Panorama documentary on the case and it was advertised that Panorama had “obtained the secret police files which make up the prosecution case” against Dewani.
After Anni’s family asked for an investigation into who had apparently leaked the files, the National Prosecuting Authority said the matter was being probed.
NPA spokesman Eric Ntabazalila had said: “Only two copies of the content of the docket were made. The circumstances under which copies of the contents of the docket came into the possession of the BBC are being investigated.”
Convicted hitman Xolile Mngeni was sentenced to life imprisonment in December for killing the young bride. Previously, his co-accused, Mziwamadoda Qwabe and Zola Tongo, were sentenced to 25 and 18 years’ imprisonment respectively.
