The family of Shrien Dewani have released a statement following his first appearance at a South African court:
Shrien remains committed to proving his innocence in a court of law and uncovering the truth behind his wife’s murder.
The extradition process has resulted in a number of assurances being provided by the South African authorities in relation to his continued hospital treatment.
We are grateful to the South African authorities for these assurances.
Shrien's family and his legal team have every confidence in the South African judicial system.
We look forward to his health improving, his name being cleared and there being an end to this legal trauma for all involved.
We recognise the widespread public interest in this case but respect the proper place for its resolution to be the South African Courts.
