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”. Shrien can only return to South Africa when he is well enough and when his personal safety can be guaranteed.
The matter is still before the Courts and so it would be inappropriate to comment further.
The High Court has temporarily halted British businessman Shrien Dewani's extradition to South Africa on mental health grounds.
Shrien Dewani, accused of arranging the murder of his wife on their honeymoon, is due to find out whether he is due to be extradited later.
CCTV footage which allegedly shows Shrien Dewani paying a taxi driver for organising his wife's death is to be shown on television tonight.
