Hi All!

And thank you kindly for your warm welcome!

I live in South Africa, and stragely enough last night they aired a documentary - that i think was made in the UK - regarding this case, on our local show Carte Blance. I obviously watched it, and have to say, all his ramblings doesn't add up!

Not even the people that live in the townships venture out there at night!!!!

No one in SA or anywhere else for that matter would suggest to foreign tourists to go for ride through a township!!! Does he really think everybody is as stupid as he is???

Sorry, just ranting, because this idiot decided to use my country as a perfect pop off place for his unwanted bride, just because we are notoriously known as a crime ridden country!

Having said that - I read far more jaw dropping news headlines of crimes happening around the globe, than our petty crime here...

Its not such a BAD place - believe me!

Verdict due on extradition 5 - 10th August. Meanwhile..................



SHRIEN DEWANI ILLNESS PROBED

Shrien Dewani may be sabotaging his own mental health, a court heard yesterday

20th July 2011
By Laura Neil


HONEYMOON murder suspect Shrien Dewani may be sabotaging his own mental health, a court heard yesterday.

The 32-year-old’s legal team say he is too ill to be extradited to South Africa, where he is wanted in South Africa for allegedly setting up a hit on Swedish bride Anni, 28, in Cape Town in November.
Hugo Keith QC, for the South African authorities, asked if there was any evidence of “a deliberate decision to avoid getting better by refusing treatment”.
Psychology expert Professor Michael Kopelman replied: “There may be some evidence of conscious manipulation.”

Dewani, who has post-traumatic stress disorder, is said to have refused treatment sessions.
Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court heard he may be over-exercising to keep levels of an enzyme high in his blood so he
cannot take anti-depressants.

Prof Kopelman assessed Dewani, from Bristol, as a high suicide risk who was unfit to stand trial.

The hearing continues.

The Home Secretary Theresa May has now ratified the extradition clapping



28 September 2011 Last updated at 16:46

Shrien Dewani's South Africa extradition approved


The home secretary has approved the extradition of a man accused of arranging the murder of his wife on their honeymoon in South Africa.

Shrien Dewani, who denies any involvement in the death of his wife Anni, 28, had opposed attempts to have him stand trial in South Africa.

A judge ruled the 31-year-old Bristol businessman could be extradited but Theresa May had to approve the move.

Mr Dewani has 14 days to lodge an appeal against the decision.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "On Monday 26 September the home secretary, having carefully considered all relevant matters, signed an order for Shrien Prakash Dewani's extradition to South Africa.

"Mr Dewani now has the opportunity, within 14 days, to appeal to the High Court against the decision of the district judge and/or the home secretary."

Cab hijacked

Mr Dewani's solicitors Hickman and Rose said they had "no comment" to make on the signing of the extradition papers.

Mrs Dewani, from Sweden, was shot after a cab the couple were travelling in was hijacked in the Gugulethu township last November.

Mr Dewani was released unharmed but Mrs Dewani's body was later found in the abandoned car.

At Mr Dewani's extradition hearing in August, District Judge Howard Riddle said the "court must consider the strong public interest in honouring our extradition treaty".

Mrs Dewani was shot after the cab the couple were travelling in was hijacked
The judge, sitting at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court in London, added that he had "no doubt" that Mr Dewani was suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder and depression but was satisfied he would receive treatment in South Africa.

Mr Dewani, a care home owner, has been detained at a Bristol clinic.

He faces charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances and obstructing the administration of justice.

Mrs Dewani's uncle, Ashok Hindocha, said the family was very pleased with the home secretary's decision.

Last week Mrs Dewani's family handed a petition with more than 11,000 signatures to Mrs May calling for the extradition to go ahead.

Mziwamadoda Qwabe, 25, and Xolile Mngeni, 23, are charged with murder, kidnapping and robbery with aggravating circumstances and will go on trial at the Western Cape High Court at a date to be set next year.

Taxi driver Zola Tongo, 31, from Bothasig, Cape Town, has been sentenced to 18 years in jail for murder, kidnapping, robbery with aggravating circumstances and perverting the course of justice after agreeing a plea bargain.

In December, Tongo told Western Cape High Court he was offered 15,000 rand (£1,400) by Mr Dewani to kill his wife.

Shrien Derwani has now lodged an appeal........


Shrien Dewani lodges South Africa extradition appeal


A man accused of ordering the murder of his wife in South Africa has lodged an appeal against a decision he should be extradited to face trial.

Shrien Dewani, 31, denies involvement in the killing of his wife Anni, 28, who died after their car was hijacked in Cape Town on their honeymoon.

The move for a High Court challenge comes after Home Secretary Theresa May approved his extradition on Monday.

Shrien Dewani will have to wait until the New Year to learn if he has won his High Court battle against extradition to South Africa

1 hour ago

******************************


Shrien Dewani will learn next year if he is to be extradited

British businessman Shrien Dewani will have to wait to the new year to learn whether he has won or lost his High Court battle against extradition to South Africa where he faces allegations of masterminding the murder of his bride on their honeymoon.


11:25AM GMT 16 Dec 2011


Care home owner Dewani, from Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol is accused of arranging the contract killing of wife Anni, 28, in Cape Town in November last year.

The 31-year-old denies any wrongdoing.

Home Secretary Theresa May signed an order for his extradition after District Judge Howard Riddle ruled at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court in south east London in August that Dewani should be sent to stand trial.

Clare Montgomery QC, appearing for Dewani, told two High Court judges he had always wished for a fair trial but there is a high risk of him committing suicide, which would be made worse by extradition.

Today the judges hearing the case - Sir John Thomas, president of the Queen's Bench Division, and Mr Justice Ouseley - were due to consider further statements from medical witnesses, who were also to be cross-examined in open court.

But the hearing was called off. A spokeswoman for the Judicial Office said all sides had now agreed there was no need for further cross-examination and the judges were now reserving their decision to the new year.

The spokeswoman said: "The court will now consider the papers and arguments. Judgment will be delivered in the course of the next legal term, which begins on January 11 2012."

Mrs Dewani, from Sweden, was shot when a taxi the couple were travelling in was hijacked in the Gugulethu township on the outskirts of Cape Town.

She was found dead in the back of the abandoned vehicle with a bullet wound to her neck after taxi driver Zola Tongo drove the newlyweds to the impoverished area.

He and Mr Dewani were ejected by the hijackers before Mrs Dewani was driven away and shot.

Tongo, who has admitted his part in the crime, claimed in a plea agreement with prosecutors that Dewani ordered the carjacking and paid for a hit on his wife.

If the High Court decides in favour of extradition, will he have any further avenues to go down to try to prolong things even further?

Surely if he was really innocent he would have nothing to fear about returning to South Africa to defend himself?

This whole trip to S.A. may well have been because it's apparently fairly easy to get a 'hit man'. Not surprising considering Aquila's recent posts.

There does seem to be valid reason to believe that Mr Dewani's preference was for men not women and I have sympathy for anyone forced to "live a lie" for fear of rejection by their family. There is of course no excuse if he went ahead with a marriage to a woman with the intention of arranging for her to be killed.

I firmly believe this man to be guilty.

So many similarities to the McCann case - PR, refusal to go back... and carrying a Barbie doll?!? Anni was stunning. She didn't look like a Barbie...

I just hope her family get the answers they seek, and Anni gets her justice.

Having unplugged myself from the propaganda matrix some time ago, this
case had passed me by. Certainly there does seem to be a modus operandi
emerging: commit a crime - hire a professional liar - run a media
campaign - when things look bad pretend to go bonkers.

On a slightly tangential note, one thing struck me reading this thread.
Apparently the suspect is an accountant who ran a series of care homes. What an eloquent expression of what we've become.

Criminals are rarely original thinkers - terrorists often get their ideas from events published in the media or from films.
Copycat crimes are common - the police are well aware of this - Devani doesn't seem to be very bright, but he managed to get a PR machine going fairly quickly.

CCTV shows Dewani couple hours before murder




29 March 2012 Last updated at 00:17 Help

The footage from the Cape Town hotel CCTV has never been seen publicly before.

BBC Panorama's Jeremy Vine explains that it shows Shrien and Anni Dewani kissing and posing for pictures, hours before she died.

Shrien Dewani denies any involvement in his wife's murder, and is fighting a request from the South African authorities that he be extradited as a suspect.

Dewani couple's honeymoon kiss caught on CCTV


CCTV footage obtained by the BBC suggests the alleged role of Shrien Dewani in the murder of his wife while on honeymoon in South Africa may not be as clear-cut as investigators say.

The video shows Shrien and Anni Dewani kissing hours before the murder and raises questions about the credibility of a key witness who is also filmed.

South African authorities have named Mr Dewani as a suspect in Anni Dewani's murder and applied for his extradition.

Mr Dewani denies any involvement.

He has appealed against his extradition and the High Court will rule on this on Friday.

His family told BBC Panorama that Mr Dewani, who is currently sectioned in the UK under the Mental Health Act, will return to South Africa to answer questions when he is well enough and his personal safety is guaranteed.

Taxi driver Zola Tongo has already admitted his part in the murder and was given a reduced sentence in exchange for testifying against Mr Dewani.

BBC One, Thursday, 29 March at 21:00
Then available in the UK on the BBC iPlayer


Tongo, the main witness against the Bristol businessman, claims he was hired by Mr Dewani to arrange his wife's execution during a fake car-jacking.

But the CCTV footage calls into question Tongo's version of what happened on 13 November 2010 - the night 28-year-old Mrs Dewani was murdered.

After failing to pick up the couple from their Cape Town hotel at 19:30, Tongo claims Mr Dewani became agitated when he called to say he would be delayed.

Tongo's lawyer, William da Grass, said about that mobile phone conversation: "Dewani demanded to know what the hold-up was and insisted that the act be perpetrated and perpetrated that very day."

The CCTV footage shows Mr Dewani speaking to Tongo while sitting next to Mrs Dewani in the hotel bar. He shows no sign of agitation.

The two men who are alleged to have carried out the hijacking of the taxi later that evening and the murder of Mrs Dewani have both retracted their confessions and are awaiting trial.

Police say Mrs Dewani was not sexually assaulted after her husband and Tongo were ejected from the car and that she died from a single gunshot wound to the neck, fuelling suggestions this was a cold-blooded execution.

But Panorama has gained access to the post-mortem examination report.

It reveals the fatal bullet first passed through Mrs Dewani's left hand before entering her chest, travelling through her body, causing fatal injuries to her neck.

The report said the bullet left what it called "an irregular gunshot exit wound".

When first interviewed by police, one of the accused gunmen said Mrs Dewani's death was an accident, but this has never before been placed into the public domain.

His co-accused told police that the gun fired as Mrs Dewani's handbag was grabbed.

Mrs Dewani was shot dead on her honeymoon
The only independent eyewitnesses to gauge Shrien Dewani's behaviour on the night of the murder were a married couple he met after he said he was forced out of the taxi and left alone in a township back street.

Local government auditor Simbonile Matokazi, who rang the police for Mr Dewani, told the BBC: "When I found out that he was accused, I was a bit surprised because when he told me his story that night, I believed him and I thought that what he was saying was the truth. And it was genuine."

In an interview with the programme, Mrs Dewani's family said if Shrien Dewani is innocent as he claims, he should travel to South Africa and answer investigators' questions.

"If he is innocent, the court will show that and if he's not then he should pay for what he's done," Anni Dewani's sister Ami Denborg said.

Here's a link to the programme for U K viewers.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01f6qvw/Panorama_The_Honeymoon_Murder/

The CCTV footage certainly did not back up the claim that Anni was desperately unhappy and would Srien really have sent texts to a hitman in front of her?

I am though having problems with how he got through a small car window and his behaviour since then is not that of a man with nothing to hide.

Hi Jean,

On looking at that footage, I would say that it does look they were not a happy couple. In many instances, they walk separately, one quite a distance in front of the other. They don't link arms, or hold hands. For a newly married couple they did not seem "very together" imo.

The question I ask myself is, why did they kill her and let him go unharmed, if it was a hijack or robbery?

Ha! Would that be the mental health problem he himself has exacerbated?
Crafty, conniving b**tard... Like pennylane, there is no doubts in my mind about his guilt.
Imo, he should be forcibly treated until he IS well enough to go. The fact he has obsessively made his condition worse speaks volumes... Just like the T9 joint refusal to return to Portugal for reconstruction.

Still, the silver lining is that it says 'extradition halted temporarily
