Anni Dewani's family spoke after a British court ruled Shrien Dewani would be extradited to South Africa to face murder charges for his wife's death. Watch.WATCH

London - Anni Dewani’s sister said that a British court’s ruling that Shrien Dewani be extradited to South Africa to face murder charges is simply "one step in the right direction".

Speaking outside the Westminster Magistrate’s Court, Ami Denborg said Anni’s family hoped he would be sent to South Africa "very soon", reported Sky News.

She said the legal process was still a big strain on her family.

"We don't want to forget Anni in this. For us, this is still all about Anni," said Ms Denborg.

"It's all about finding out what happened to her and we will fight this battle to the end."

Standing behind his daughter, Vinod Hindocha said: "All I need is answers."

The 33-year old British businessman's defence team had argued that his mental health could suffer setbacks if he was sent back now.

He has earlier been diagnosed with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Dewani's lawyers argued that the extradition decision should be delayed by six months.

Dewani is accused of having orchestrated the death of his wife Anni, 28, while they were on their honeymoon in Cape Town.

She was shot as the newlywed couple travelled in a taxi on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010. Dewani has denied any involvement.
