Shrien and Anni Dewani
Murder accused Shrien Dewani’s extradition to South Africa, where he could face claims that he is secretly gay, has been approved by the UK government.
On Wednesday, Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May ratified a recent court judgment that Dewani should stand trial in South Africa on charges of organising the murder of his newly-wed wife while on honeymoon in the country.
Dewani has been accused of hiring men to stage a fake carjacking in which his wife Anni was murdered in November 2010.
A possible motive proposed by newspaper reports and a recent documentary is that Dewani is gay and wanted to find a way out of the marriage without getting a divorce.
It’s been claimed that police have interviewed two of Dewani’s former gay lovers and that he never had sex with his murdered wife.
Dewani has denied the claims and is expected to take further legal action to avoid extradition to South Africa.
