Shrien Dewani cleared in honeymoon murder trial by SA judge

How did this happen? Why is the justice framework in South Africa entertaining?

Shrien Dewani, the British mogul representative blamed for orchestrating his wife’s homicide amid their wedding trip in South Africa in November 2010 was today cleared of any part in the homicide. The judge, Jeanette Traverso, rejected the body of evidence against Shrien Dewani, in light of the fact that as indicated by her ‘the proof introduced by the indictment fell “far beneath the limit” of what a sensible court could convict on. She said the proof of the arraignment’s primary witness, cab driver Zola Tongo, was “loaded with disagreements” and “exceedingly easily proven wrong”.



Significance she didn’t accept what he said in court. Then, there was video indicating Mr Dewani meeting with Tongo and providing for him cash days before the homicide, however this was insufficient to convict him. He will now be discharged. The killed wife, Anni Dewani’s family including her sister Ami, sibling Anish, and father Vinod (seen above) – broke down after the decision, and said they couldn’t accept their sister didn’t get any justice. They said they would languish ‘restless nights over whatever is left of their lives’.
