Dewani 'may recover quicker in South Africa'
A judge has asked psychiatrists to assess whether the honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani would be better treated for mental health problems in South Africa.
Mr Dewani, 32, from Bristol, is fighting extradition to South Africa, where he is accused of murdering his wife, Anni, 28. He denies the charge.
Dr Ian Cumming, a psychiatrist who examined Mr Dewani on behalf of the South African government, told Westminster magistrates’ court that it could be months, even years, before he is fit enough to be sent for trial.
The court heard that the lengthy legal proceedings may be contributing to Mr Dewani’s depression and post-traumatic stress. The case was adjourned until 19 October.
