News : Dewani says he'll kill himself if sent to SA

Shrien Dewani, accused of murdering his bride Anni while they were on honeymoon in South Africa, has said he will kill himself if he is extradited to this country.
The BBC reported that on the second day of Dewani's extradition hearing yesterday, a psychiatric expert told the Belmarsh Magistrates' Court, sitting at the Woolwich Crown Court, in east London, about the mental health of the businessman from Bristol.


The South African government wants Dewani to go back to Cape Town to face trial for the murder. It is alleged that Dewani asked the couple's taxi driver, Zola Tongo, to hire hitmen to kill his bride and paid R15000 for the contract hit.
Anni was shot dead in Gugulethu, Cape Town, in November.
A psychiatric expert testified yesterday that Dewani had told him he would try to commit suicide if he were extradited and that it would be "quite good" if he died in a South African prison.
The BBC reported that a consultant neuropsychiatrist, Professor Michael Kopelman, testified that he twice examined Dewani, asking him what he would do if he were to be sent to South Africa.
Kopelman testified that Dewani told him: "I would try to kill myself, wouldn't you?
"It would be quite good if I died over there, that would make them look stupid."
Since Dewani was accused of his bride's murder - he was arrested in December - he has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and severe depression.
On Monday, the first day of the extradition hearing, the judge ruled that Dewani was too sick to attend the proceedings and he was permitted to leave court after 10 minutes.
Dewani's behaviour was carefully assessed by lawyers representing the South African government.
They say that Dewani has been "carrying out strenuous exercise for hours on end" in the mental hospital in which he has been detained, including skipping, sit-ups and push-ups, and using the gymnasium.
But on Monday Dewani's doctor, Paul Cantrell, testified that there was nothing unusual about that. He disputed suggestions that Dewani exercised strenuously to raise the levels of a chemical in his blood to prevent his anti-depressants from being effective.
Tongo is serving 18 years in jail for his role in Anni's murder after striking a plea agreement. He testified that Dewani ordered the fake hijacking in which his bride died.
The hearing continues today and tomorrow, after which the judge will decide on Dewani's extradition.
