Johannesburg - The Gupta family would co-operate with investigators in the jet saga, which received widespread criticism this week, a family spokesperson said on Saturday.

"We have and will continue to co-operate with the investigators in the interests of the full facts being brought to the fore in this matter," said Gary Naidoo in a statement.

"We stand by our position... [and] believe it is in the best interests of the process for the investigations to be completed before we make any further comments."

Naidoo said the family had been inundated with phone calls since the announcement by Justice Minister Jeff Radebe on Friday.

Earlier this week, the family said it had not been directly involved in the Waterkloof incident, but had been assured by the Indian High Commission that proper processes were followed and agreements reached with the appropriate officials.

Radebe announced that five high ranking officials and military personnel had been suspended over the unauthorised landing of a jet chartered by Gupta family at the Waterkloof Air Force Base - a national key point - on Tuesday.

Radebe said the landing was not cleared by proper authorities.

It was carrying guests to the wedding of Vega Gupta, 23, to Indian-born Aaskash Jahajgarhia at Sun City, North West.

The Gupta's own The New Age newspaper and Sahara Computers.

The jet was moved off the base on Thursday afternoon, amid widespread criticism.
