Murder-accused Shrien Dewani is suing the lawyer of one his wife Anni’s murderers for his phone records.

He is suing William da Grass, the lawyer for taxi driver Zola Tongo, Beeld reported today.

Tongo was jailed for 18 years for the murder of Anni Dewani while the British couple was honeymooning in Cape Town.

Tongo testified during his trial in 2010 that Shrien Dewani was the mastermind behind her killing during a hijacking in Gugulethu.

Shrien Dewani wants Da Grass to hand over his phone records between November 14 2010 and November 30 2010.

These include all mobile phone numbers registered in Da Grass’s name and all landline numbers registered in his name or the name of his law firm, ENS.

Beeld and Die Burger are in possession of a copy of the summons.

Da Grass declined to comment to the Afrikaans dailies.

He has until August 15 to hand over the phone records to the Western Cape High Court.
