Shrien Dewani too stressed for extradition, court is told
Tuesday 19 July 2011
Shrien Dewani, the British man accused of organising his wife's murder during their honeymoon in South Africa, is suffering from mental disorders which make him unfit for extradition, a judge was told yesterday.
Dr Paul Cantrell, the psychiatrist who has been treating Mr Dewani, 31, at a medium secure hospital in Bristol, said that since the murder he had developed post-traumatic stress disorder and severe depression.
Dr Cantrell claimed that Mr Dewani was not fit to travel from his hospital in Bristol or to stand trial.
Anni Dewani, 28, was shot dead in the back of a taxi in Cape Town on 13 November last year. The South African authorities, who are seeking Mr Dewani's extradition, allege that he conspired with three other men to have her murdered.
