Anni Dewani's family claim court process 'is like torture'

Anni Dewani's family have said the continuing court process is like, 'legal torture' as Shrien Dewani was told he will only be moved from a secure mental health hospital where he is being treated if he does not pose a significant risk of absconding.

Despite agreement of British and South African psychiatrists that he should be moved to aid his recovery from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, chief magistrate Howard Riddle said that there is a possibility that his clinical needs would not determine where he goes.

He is wanted in South Africa over the honeymoon murder of his wife, Anni in November 2010.
