The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) announced on Sunday that is to open a criminal case against the Guptas and the directors of their companies
The directors include President Jacob Zuma’s son‚ Duduzane Zuma‚ whom the EFF described as the president’s “proxy” in the Gupta businesses.
The criminal case against the Guptas is specifically against the brothers Atul‚ Ajay‚ and Rajesh‚ it said.
The case will be opened at the Rosebank Police Station on Sunday.
“The criminal case the EFF will open relates to the prima facie evidence contained in the affidavit of Minister of Finance’s application to the High Court filed on the 14th of October 2016‚” said EFF acting national spokesperson Fana Mokoena.
“The Minister’s application reveals the information already hinted by the banks that the Gupta family and their businesses are involved in money laundering‚ racketeering‚ and gross corruption that is robbing South Africa of billions of Rands. The immediate amount that has been confirmed to have been illegally and suspiciously transferred is R6.8 billion and it is clear that this amount is just the tip of an iceberg.
“The EFF leadership believes that a thorough criminal investigation which should be defined by cooperation of the banks‚ the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC)‚ the National Treasury‚ Lanseria Airport staff members‚ and many others will reveal the extent and depth of Gupta criminal syndicate‚ which is in the process of drying out South Africa’s resources‚” Mokoena added
