Shrien Dewani, who was implicated in the murder of his wife Anni Dewani in South Africa, has been granted bail by a UK court.
According to reports, Shrien Dewani was granted bail after South African authorities lost their appeal opposing bail.
The British millionaire was arrested in London earlier this week on a South African extradition warrant and was initially granted bail of e250 000 by the Westminster Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
However, he remained behind bars because South African authorities lodged an immediate appeal.
That appeal was heard by the High Court in London on Friday.
Reports say lawyers for South African authorities argued that there were substantial grounds to suspect that Dewani would not surrender for an extradition hearing later this month if he was released on bail.
However, High Court Judge Duncan Ouseley disagreed and rejected the appeal, upholding the decision by the Westminster Magistrate's Court.
Shrien Dewani's arrest came shortly after Zola Tongo, the man who chauffeured the couple around during their honeymoon in Cape Town, claimed in court that Dewani gave him R15 000 as payment to kill Anni Dewani and make it look like a hijacking.
The money was apparently to be shared by Tongo and the two other accused in the case.
Tongo allegedly received a further R1 000 after Anni Dewani was killed.
He claimed that the couple was never hijacked or forced out of the vehicle, saying the hijacking was faked to cover up the murder.
According to the plea bargain agreement, Tongo was sentenced to an effective 18 years imprisonment for his role in the crime.
