Dewani will walk free next week (perhaps even on Monday) - criminal law expert

This past week Shrien Dewani’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss all charges against the British businessman in terms of section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Act.

This section of the act stipulates that, at the close of arguments, if the court believes there is insufficient evidence with which a reasonable court can convict, it may return a verdict of not guilty.

“Zola Tongo’s evidence was very poor,” says criminal law expert Cliff Alexander. “If the judge agrees that’ll be the end of it.

“The judge may already decide on Monday,” says Alexander. “My opinion is she will grant this application.”
