Honeymoon Killer Suspect Dehwani Insults Africa
Shrien Dewani’s extradition to South Africa has been temporary halted on medical grounds.
Dewani is supposed to stand trial in South Africa for his part in the murder of his wife Anni Dewani while on their honeymoon in Cape Town, South Africa. He stands accused of hiring men to kill her during a taxi ride.
His appeal was based on
the effect of his extradition on his mental illness and the lack of facilities for its treatment, but also on the high risk of HIV/AIDS infection and attack, particularly sexual violence, from other inmates.
The mental illness is the one that was held up but we found the rest of the basis for appeal very offensive. What this man is basically saying is that if he were to be brought to Africa as a suspect in a murder he should be put in special facilities different from other people who are murder suspects. In essence he is asking for treatment that would not be accorded a murder suspect would be given elsewhere. His reason is “those Africans will give me AIDS!”. We are glad to hear that the judge dismissed this.
Now they should sort him out and hand him over. He used Africa as his ground for execution once. That was an insult. Then he called us diseased and unfit to try him. We will not stand for this.
