Dewani family High Court welcome ruling

The Dewani family are grateful that the High Court has upheld the appeal and blocked any attempt to extradite Shrien to South Africa now. Shrien is innocent and is determined to return to South Africa to clear his name and seek justice for his wife Anni. The High Court has confirmed that extradition now would be 'unjust and oppressive'. The matter is still before the courts and so it would be inappropriate to comment further.
