Anni’s parents reveal plans to sue Shrien Dewani
Anni’s father Vinod says they were shocked to hear on the first day of the trial that Dewani was bisexual.
CAPE TOWN - Slain Swedish bride, Anni Hindocha Dewani' s parents have revealed their intention to sue her murder accused husband, Shrien Dewani, who didn't disclose his bisexuality before he married her.
Dewani, a British businessman, is on trial in the Western Cape High Court for allegedly ordering a hit on his wife during the couple's honeymoon in Cape Town in November 2010.
His lawyer, Francois van Zyl, has applied for his discharge and acquittal claiming there is no credible evidence against him.
If granted, the Briton will be able to return to the United Kingdom without having to present his case.
Speaking for the first time since the start of the murder trial, Anni's parents have told the UK's Daily Mail that Dewani married their daughter under false pretences.
"He deceived us. He totally deceived the whole family."
Anni's father Vinod says they were shocked to hear on the first day of the trial that Dewani was bisexual.
"Which father in the world, including me, would really allow their daughter to marry a person who sleeps with men?"
He has called on Dewani not to be a coward and take the stand in his own defence.
Dewani was extradited to South Africa earlier this year, after a lengthy legal battle, to stand trial for his role in the killing.
Three South African men were already convicted, one of whom has since passed way.
