Cape Town - Members of the South African family whose lives were turned into a nightmare by a British stalker say they are relieved that he has been found guilty, Eyewitness News reports.
 
Shumsheer Ghumman was found guilty of fraud, incitement to commit murder, attempted murder and malicious damage to property in a Cape Town court on Wednesday.

Ghumman appeared stunned by the verdict.

Ghumman came to South Africa in January 2011, posing as a journalist to stalk Hannah Rhind. He hired a hitman to kill her father and even tried to petrol bomb her Clifton home.

Rhind’s father, Philip, said on Wednesday that his daughter was relieved by the verdict.

He said she had been under a lot of strain and that she was happy it was coming to an end.

She was in San Francisco at the time of the verdict.

      Same things. All slaves to the great madam or something. Some kind of fat tannie in a castle that decides what they do.
