S Africa court to decide Dewani’s fate today

S Africa court to decide Dewani’s fate today
The fate of Shrien Dewani, the British-Indian millionaire accused of murdering his Indo-Swedish bride during their honeymoon in 2010, is expected to be decided on Monday by a South African court here. 

Judge Jeanette Traverso will tomorow decide whether to throw out the high-profile trial of Dewani even before he has started his defence against accusation that he plotted to kill his 28-year-old wife Anni. Traverso has to decide if the prosecution case she has heard against the 34-year-old businessman is so weak at this stage that she can see no reasonable prospect she might find him guilty once she has also heard his defence. Prosecutors in the six-week-long trial said Dewani was a closet homosexual, and “needed to find a way out” of his marriage. 

He admitted at the start of the trial he is bisexual and visited male bondage prostitutes. But he also insisted he loved his new wife Anni and had no hand in what happened.
