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.
Dewani, 32, denies any involvement in the killing of his wife Anni in Cape Town, in November 2010.
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.
