10th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

The British businessman wanted in South Africa over the murder of his bride on their honeymoon was granted bail at the High Court in London on Friday.

South Africa wants to extradite 30-year-old Shrien Dewani on suspicion of paying to have his bride Anni killed in a carjacking during their honeymoon in Cape Town.

Lawyers for the South African authorities had argued that there were substantial grounds for suspecting Dewani would not surrender for an extradition hearing later this month were he allowed bail.

But High Court judge Duncan Ouseley disagreed and allowed his application.

Dewani strongly denies any involvement in the murder and told the earlier court hearing in London that he did not agree to the extradition.
