Honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani is "days away" from being extradited to South Africa to face trial for arranging the murder of his wife Anni after reportedly deciding against taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights.
Dewani, 33, was refused permission to appeal his extradition at the UK Supreme Court earlier this month and was expected to look to the European courts as a last resort.
The Daily Telegraph quoted sources close to the case that Mr Dewani and his legal team have now decided against further appeal.
The nursing home owner from Bristol has been detained at a mental health facility in the city after being diagnosed with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder since the murder of his wife during the couple's honeymoon in South Africa in December 2010.
He is now expected to be flown to Cape Town before 6 April.
In February, the UK High Court ruled that Dewani can be extradited after South African prosecutors provided assurances about his detention.
Three South African men have already been convicted for Anni's murder but prosecutors say Mr Dewani arranged the killing.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
