A BRITISH businessman accused of arranging for his wife to be murdered while they were on honeymoon in Cape Town can be extradited to face trial in South Africa, a court ruled yesterday.
However, the judge said the decision on whether to extradite Shrien Dewani (31), who has denied conspiring to kill his wife, Anni, in a fake car-jacking last November, would need to be approved by Home Secretary Theresa May.
Anni Dewani (28), from Sweden, was shot when the taxi the couple were travelling in was hijacked on the outskirts of Cape Town last November.
Mr Dewani claims he and the cab driver, Zola Tongo, were forced out of the car unharmed before Mrs Dewani was driven away and killed. However, Mr Tongo turned state witness and alleged that Dewani paid for his wife to be killed.
