Anni Dewani was not raped - pathologist
Cape Town - Honeymooner Anni Dewani was not raped or sexually abused by her hijackers, the Western Cape High Court heard on Wednesday.
“There was nothing microscopically I could find. Her underwear was intact, not disrupted. There was no evidence of 1/8sexual 3/8 injury internally or externally,” pathologist Janette Verster said.
Four fresh contusions were found on the inside of the tourist's left leg.
“They were arranged in a semi-circular fashion, close to one another, which conforms to finger point contusions.”
Fresh marks were also found below her left knee, on the outer part of the leg.
The pathologist was testifying in the trial of Xolile Mngeni, 25, who has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, robbing and shooting Dewani dead in Gugulethu, on November 13, 2010.
Verster conducted the autopsy the day after the killing and also attended the scene.
The trial continues. - Sapa
