Then and Now

by duncanr

shrendewani120Mr Dewani’s lawyer says:

“These allegations are completely false and ridiculous.”

Says Dewani’s media rep Max Clifford:

“It is categorically denied. Shrien Dewani has never had a sexual relationship with a man in his life.” (Anorak, Dec 2010)

Fast forward to Oct 2014 . . .

British millionaire Shrien Dewani has admitted he is bisexual and had sex with male prostitutes and men he met in clubs –

by duncanr

Shrien Dewani stands accused of conspiring with others to arrange the kidnap and murder of his wife Anni during their honeymoon in S.Africa.

He has avoided extradition from the UK to answer these charges in a S.Sfrican court of law on the grounds of his unstable mental condition.

Now it appears the two supposedly independent psychiatrists who testified regarding his mental condition were anything but independent

Shrien Dewani and Gary McKinnon

by duncanr

Well, there’s a surprise

The extradiction of Shrien Dewani from the UK to S.Africa to answer allegations that he played an active role in the kidnap and murder of his wife Anni has been halted because of concerns about his mental health and personal safety (

Gary McKinnon faces extradition to USA

Now that the UK has ruled a suspect’s mental health and fears of his personal safety suffice to block extradiction of that individual to answer charges in another country, can we now expect the UK to block the extradition of Gary Mackinnon to the USA ?

Shrien Dewani – Shit Defence

by duncanr

Lawyers acting on behalf of Shrien Dewani are fighting to prevent him being extradited to S.Africa to face allegations that he orchestrated his wife’s death while the couple were on honeymoon there.

If all else fails and Shrien does have to appear in court in S.Africa to answer the charge that he conspired to have his wife, Anni, killed, perhaps he should try the tactic employed by Reindolf King Kumodzi to prevent court case from proceeding ? 😆

The white officer is accused of calling a black subordinate a ‘black baboon’ and then trying to bribe him with the offer of a car to drop the accusation against him.

Full details here –

While this incident is not directly connected to the Dewani murder enquiry, no doubt Shrien Dewani’s lawyers will seek to exploit this incident to strengthen their argument that the case against their client is built on racism and fraud ?
