CAPE TOWN - The uncle of slain bride Anni Dewani says a British inquest into her death is one of several legal avenues open to her family who remain desperate for answers about her murder.

The Swede was shot and killed while on honeymoon with her husband and UK businessman Shrien Dewani in the Mother City in 2010.

He was accused of hiring hitmen to kill her, but was acquitted of the charges in December last year.

British coroner Andrew Walker is due to decide on the scope of the inquest next week Wednesday.

This may result in Shrien having to testify about his wife's death under oath.

Ten months ago the Western Cape High Court acquitted Dewani after South African prosecutors failed to build a strong case against him.

Anni's uncle, Ashok Hindocha, says they didn't get justice in South Africa, but there are other options.

"There are many options actually. A private prosecutor in the UK, we are looking into it."

Three South African men were jailed for their role in the murder.

One has since died in prison.
