A lawyer for the South African government said it was "delighted" with the High Court's ruling that has paved the way for honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani to be extradited.
As part of their ruling, the judges, led by Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas, said an undertaking must be given by the government relating to how long Dewani would be kept in the country without trial.
The lawyer indicated the government would be able to give the undertaking, but needed 14 days "for final clarification".
