London – The extradition of Indian-origin man Shrien Dewani to South Africa after a long legal battle has brought the prospect of justice for his dead wife a step closer, her family has said.

Shrien Dewani, 33, is being extradited to South Africa after he lost his last legal battle to block the move over the charges of killing his Swedish wife of Indian-origin Anni, 28, in November 2010 in Cape Town.

Anish Hindocha, Anni’s brother, said there were still questions to be answered over the death of his sister in South Africa, the Guardian reported Monday.

“It has been very difficult for my family. We are just focusing on this case at the moment and it is hard to even start making the grieving process final yet because there are so many questions we need answers to,” Hindocha was quoted as saying.

He was speaking after hearing the news that Dewani will fly out of Heathrow airport Monday evening, arriving in Cape Town Tuesday morning and would be taken straight to a court hearing, the report said.

Anni was shot as the couple travelled in a taxi through the Gugulethu township, while they were on honeymoon.

Dewani’s lawyers had argued that he should not be forced to leave Britain to face trial until he had recovered from mental health problems including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

But, judges at the high court in Britain in March rejected his appeal and denied him the chance to take the case to the supreme court.

Dewani is expected to appear at Western Cape High Court in Cape Town for a brief hearing Tuesday morning, and his mental health will then be assessed by a doctor.

He will be treated at Valkenberg Hospital while awaiting trial.
