Cape Town - Media camera crews were setting up their equipment in the arrivals hall at Cape Town International Airport on Tuesday morning, ahead of the anticipated arrival of honeymoon murder accused Shrien Dewani.

The millionaire businessman is expected to touch down on British Airways flight BA059 direct out of London's Heathrow Airport.

According to the electronic information board in the arrivals hall, the flight will land at 09:56.

Dewani is set to be whisked from the airport to the Western Cape High Court, where he is expected to appear before Judge President John Hlophe at 11:30.

The justice department on Monday said Dewani was being accompanied on the flight by a medical doctor, a nurse, and members of the SA Police Service.

When he appears in court, he is expected to be charged with conspiracy to commit murder and defeating the ends of justice.

Dewani claimed he and his wife Anni were kidnapped at gunpoint as they drove through Gugulethu in Cape Town in a taxi in November 2010.

The couple had been on honeymoon in the country. Dewani was released unharmed while his wife's body was found in the abandoned car the next day. She had been shot dead.

Xolile Mngeni was convicted of the murder and jailed for life.

Prosecutors alleged Dewani hired him to kill his wife. Two other alleged accomplices are also already serving jail terms in connection with the crimes. Dewani has denied any part in the murder.
