Dewani family dismisses new evidence
London: The family of Indian-origin British
businessman Shrien Dewani, who allegedly organised his wife
Anni`s killing during their honeymoon in Cape Town, has
dismissed claims that South African police has compiled a
"compelling dossier" against him, saying it is "all old
Anni was killed after the taxi the couple were travelling
in was car-jacked.
Dewani, a resident of Westbury-on-Trym near Bristol, has
always denied the accusations as the South African authorities
continue to try to get him extradited to stand trial.
According to The Sun, the South African police had put
together a file containing CCTV footage, mobile phone records
and witness statements that they believe will provide the
foundation for their case against him.
However, public relations expert Max Clifford, who
is representing the Dewani family, told the Bristol Evening
Post: "It`s all old stuff, cobbled together and has absolutely
no credibility whatsoever. Shrien is totally innocent and it`s
only a matter of time before this is clearly shown."
Dewani`s legal team insists that he is innocent, but
South African police say they are confident Dewani will
eventually be extradited and tried for murder.
Dewani`s mental health has deteriorated and he has
been receiving treatment.
The full extradition hearing is scheduled for May
