Investigating Directorate head advocate Hermione Cronje has asked Interpol to arrest and deport the Guptas to South Africa to stand trial for fraud and money laundering.

The warrant relates to R25 million paid for a feasibility study to determine the viability of the failed R288 million Estina dairy farm project.

The money was paid to Nulane Investment Bank of Baroda by the Free State government. After Nulane was paid, it appointed and paid DeLoitte R1.5 million to conduct the study.

The rest was allegedly laundered to a company owned by the Gupta’s.

Four others, including a close Gupta associate, were officially charged at the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s court today.
