The judge presiding over the case of a man accused of ordering the contract killing of his wife has adjourned the case to 18 September to consider psychiatric reports from experts. Shrien Dewani will attend only if well enough.
The Defence and the CPS have asked the judge to consider whether a further adjournment of a year is necessary.
The defence of Shrien Dewani have quoted his psychiatrist today saying that he has made some progress with his mental health, remains on drug treatment and is in compulsory detention in a psyciatric unit until May 2013. Mr Dewani has been accused of ordering his wife's murder on their honeymoon.
With both his mental conditions - a depressive illness and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - he has moved from a severe to a moderate diagnosis.
He remains at risk of suicide, though this is decreasing. His recovery is slow and they argue that it will be impeded by more court hearings at this time. They say his best prospects of recovery are if there is an adjournment of 12 months.
Mr Dewani remains, according to his psychiatrist, unable to give an account of himself, with his memory loss possibly linked to his PTSD condition.
South African government representative Hugo Keith QC has said today that he wants the case against Shrien Dewani to be adjourned until late September/early October for the South African government to gather further medical evidence on Dewani's condition.

The defence (Clare Montgomery QC) want a longer adjournment, as they say that this presents the best chance of Mr Dewani making a sufficient recovery.
