Smiling Dewani images make headlines
The images, taken through the fences of Valkenberg, show the 34-year-old smiling and laughing.
LONDON - An image of honeymoon murder accused Shrien Dewani smiling and laughing behind a fence at Valkenberg Psychiatric Hospital in Cape Town is making headline news in Britain today as the country reviews its extradition process.
Many are now arguing that it's become too easy to thwart attempts to remove someone from the UK to face justice abroad because of human rights laws.
The issue has been brought into focus following the successful prosecution of a radical Islamic preacher in America who had avoided extradition from his London home for four years.
Under the headline, 'Is smiling Dewani now mentally fit to face trial?', a British newspaper has a series of photographs taken through secure fencing showing the 34-year-old smiling and laughing.
Dewani appears to be accompanied by a guard and a nurse while under treatment for mental health issues.
It comes after a lengthy extradition battle in the UK revolving around laws which the British prime minister says he now wants to review.
This week Abu Hamza, a radical Islamist preacher who was living in London, has been jailed for life in New York for aiding the taking of hostages in Yemen and seeking to set up an al-Qaeda training camp in the US.
But it had taken four years to remove him from Britain and his family continue to live in London at the expense of taxpayers' even though four of his sons have also been imprisoned.
He is being held at the Valkenberg Psychiatric Hospital in Pinelands.
His wife Anni was shot dead in an alleged fake hijacking in Gugulethu while the couple were in Cape Town on their honeymoon in 2010.
Dewani has denied orchestrating his wife's murder.
A trial date has not yet been set.
