Honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani should be extradited to South Africa, a court hearing has ruled.
A man accused of being hired by Shrien Dewani to kill his bride on their honeymoon has been jailed for 25 years after admitting murder.
The High Court has temporarily halted British businessman Shrien Dewani's extradition to South Africa on mental health grounds.
Shrien Dewani will learn whether he can be extradited to South Africa today.
Dewani, a 33 year-old businessman, is accused of orchestrating the death of wife Anni, 28.
She was shot as the couple travelled in a taxi on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010.
Dewani denies any involvement.
Dewani's extradition has had long delays due to his ongoing depression and post-traumatic stress disorder but the court heard at the beginning of the month that his condition is now improving.
An extradition hearing has been told that if a British court decides that Shrien Dewani is mentally fit to be returned to South Africa, he would be returned to a secure psychiatric unit.
Barrister Hugo Keith, for the South African government, told the court that there was a guarantee from the South African government to put Mr Dewani on a direct overnight flight to Cape Town, accompanied by two detectives and a trained psychiatric nurse.
He would be taken directly to the high court where he would have the charges put to him. He would be detained in Valkenberg secure unit and given the option of a single room.
Shrien Dewani's extradition hearing has been told that there have been significant improvement in his mental health.
He has now made "many more assertive statements that he wishes to return to fight the case against him", said barrister Hugo Keith, for the South African government.
However he accepted that he was still suffering from depression and a lower level of Post-traumatic stress disorder.
A judge must now decide if Shrien Dewani's mental health has improved sufficiently for him to be extradited or whether conditions in South African detention centres might breach his human rights given his current health.
The court is now being reminded of the medical evidence given at the earlier hearings suggesting that Shrien Dewani was not mentally fit to stand trial
They were told that there was a shortage of qualified psychiatrists in South Africa and most would not work inside jails there.
It was argued by its government that he would receive adequate medical care, although it was conceded that it would not be of the same quality as that offered in the UK.
Opening Shrien Dewani's extradition case on behalf of the South African government, Hugo Keith QC, said this was a case that would involve complex medical evidence about Mr Dewani's fitness to stand trial.
He started by reminding the court of the history to this case, saying it was the continuation of an application to extradite first heard in 2011.
It was decided by Chief Magistrate Howard Riddle following that hearing that Shrien Dewani should be extradited to face charges of conspiracy to kidnap, murder and obstructing justice.
There was then an appeal on Mr Dewani's behalf to the Queens Bench of the High Court that it would breach his human rights under the European Convention articles 2 and 3.
The judges were told that he suffered from depression and was a suicide risk and that prison conditions in South Africa would be a violation of his rights.
The hearing into the extradition of Shrien Dewani to South Africa where he is wanted for the murder of his bride, Anni, in November 2010 has begun at Westminster Magistrates Court, after repeated legal delays.
Mr Dewani was not present in court, after being excused at a hearing last week. However, his father was in the public gallery sitting close to many of Anni Dewani's family.
Anni Dewani, 28, was murdered after the couple were allegedly kidnapped during a sightseeing drive through a township near Cape Town while they were on their honeymoon.
Shrien Dewani escaped unharmed and has repeatedly denied any involvement. He was allowed to leave South Africa four days after the murder.
However, the driver later admitted in court as part of a plea bargain that he had been approached by Shrien Dewani and paid the equivalent £1,300 to murder his new bride.
The full extradition hearing for a man accused of the honeymoon murder of his wife in South Africa is due to begin today.
Shrien Dewani, 33, is accused of orchestrating the death of his 28-year-old wife Anni, who was shot as the couple travelled in a taxi on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010.
He has been receiving treatment for mental health problems at a hospital in Bristol, but there have been fluctuations in his condition.
In April prosecutors said that his post traumatic stress disorder and depression had "improved significantly".
But then in May Westminster Magistrates' Court was told that he had suffered a relapse after being taken off medication to which he had a bad reaction.
Xolile Mngeni, 25, who was convicted of firing the shot that killed Anni Dewani on her honeymoon, has been handed a life sentence by a judge in South Africa.
Xolile Mngeni, who had surgery in June 2011 to remove a brain tumour, has suffered seizures and black outs and has memory problems, his lawyer said. His poor health has slowed his trial and he appeared skinnier than he had at previous hearings.
In his ruling, Judge Henney dismissed claims by Mngeni's lawyer that his client had been set up for the killing.
Zola Tongo, the taxi driver that police say Anni's husband Shrien asked to plot the killing, earlier pleaded guilty to charges over the death and received an 18-year prison sentence. Mziwamadoda Qwabe was jailed in August for 25 years after admitting murder.
Both Tongo and Qwabe have said Mr Dewani wanted it to look like he was not involved his wife's murder.
In a statement provided as part of his plea deal, Qwabe said that after he and Mngeni staged the fake hijacking, he drove the car as Mngeni kept a pistol pointed at Mrs Dewani in the back seat and then pulled the trigger, the fatal shot going through her neck.
Panicked, Qwabe said he stopped the car and got out, helping Mngeni find the spent bullet casing. He threw the casing into a sewer as they ran away into the night.
Prosecutors said Xolile Mngeni was hired by Mrs Dewani's British husband Shrien Dewani to carry out the killing, which was made to look like a car hijacking in Cape Town's impoverished Gugulethu township during the couple's honeymoon.
Following her death three men have been convicted. Anni's husband Shrien Dewani is fighting extradition to South Africa and continues to deny he orchestrated the killing. The convictions to date are:
December 2010: Taxi driver Zola Tongo is jailed for 18 years after making a plea agreement with prosecutors.
August 2012: Mziwamadoda Qwabe is jailed for 25 years after admitting murder.
November 2012: Xolile Mngeni is found guilty of killing Mrs Dewani.
