`Shrien Dewani can be extradited to S Africa`
London: Shrien Dewani, the Indian-origin
Briton who allegedly masterminded the murder of his wife
during the couple`s honeymoon in South Africa, can be
extradited to stand trial there, a judge ruled on Wednesday.
Dewani, 31, from Bristol, had married Anni Dewani, 28, in
a Bollywood-style wedding in India.
Annie was murdered in South Africa allegedly at the behest
of Shrien, on November 13 last year.
Shrien`s extradition will have to be ratified by the Home
Secretary Theresa May.
His legal team said they may lodge an appeal against the
South African prosecutors say they have evidence that
Shrien paid a Cape Town taxi driver to arrange Anni`s murder.
District Judge Howard Riddle said he can be extradited
after a hearing at Belmarsh Magistrates` Court in London.
Dewani, a British national, denies murder.
Shrien is currently undergoing medical treatment.
Although the South African police have charged three South
Africans in connection with the case, they have named Shrien
Dewani as the plot`s `mastermind`.
