Shrien Dewani's mental health 'improving'

Shrien Dewani – the husband of murdered bride Anni Dewani – has requested to be moved to a rehabilitation centre following an improvement in his mental health.

Mr Dewani, 32, had been held at a secure mental health hospital in his hometown Bristol, diagnosed with severe post-traumatic stress disorder.
He is subject to a curfew and his movements outside are controlled.

His lawyers however, asked for a relaxation in his bail conditions at Westminster Magistrates on Tuesday.

Mr Dewani was accused of collusion in the brutal murder of Anni during the couple’s honeymoon in South Africa in 2010.

South African authorities had demanded Mr Dewani’s extradition but the request was denied earlier this year after his lawyers told court that he needed at least a year to recover from PTSD before dealing with the extradition process.

Anni Dewani's father Vinod Hindocha told the BBC that the protracted court sequence was "torturing us every day".

"I am here again today with still no real hope of me knowing the full story of why Anni was murdered," he said outside the court.
Mr Hindocha questioned why Mr Dewani had not been handed over to the South African authorities.

"The UK police have arrested him and the South African police want him back as a prime suspect, yet still he remains here. Why? I ask how long can post-traumatic stress last?

"As far as I'm concerned the South Africans have proved to me that they will treat him fairly and put the case against him properly.

Mrs Dewani, 28, from Sweden, was shot when a taxi in which the couple were travelling was hijacked in Cape Town's Gugulethu township during their honeymoon.

Taxi driver Zola Tongo, from Bothasig, Cape Town, has been jailed for 18 years for murder, kidnapping, robbery with aggravating circumstances and perverting the course of justice.

He has claimed he was hired by Mr Dewani to arrange his wife's execution during a fake carjacking.

Mr Dewani denies the charges.
