Pre-trial in Dewani case

2012-07-25 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Court officials in the Western Cape High Court were yesterday not aware that today would see the last pre-trial for the two co-accused in the Anni Dewani murder trial.

Eric Ntabazalila, Western Cape spokesperson for the office of the director of public prosecutions, yesterday afternoon confirmed that the pre-trials will be held today. The trial of Xolile Mngeni and Mziwimadoda Qwabe follows on July 30.

He said the extradition hearing of Shrien Dewani, Anni’s husband, would begin the next day in the Westminster Magistrate’s Court in London. Anni’s father, Vinod Hindocha, said from Sweden yesterday he was glad the trial of Mngeni and Qwabe was starting, but he was not sure if any of the family would come to SA.
