Honeymoon murder suspect can be extradited to South Africa, says High Court – UK Human Rights Blog

‘Government of the Republic of South Africa v Dewani [2014] EWHC 153 (Admin) 31 January 2014. Shrien Dewani, the British man facing charges of murdering his wife on honeymoon in South Africa, has lost his appeal to block extradition there (so far three men have been convicted in South Africa over Mrs Dewani’s death).
