Gordhan files court papers

2016-10-19 06:00

COURT papers filed by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan that contain details about “suspicious” bank transactions by Gupta-owned companies totalling almost R7 billion may be the first indication that Treasury has put in motion its so-called “nuclear bomb” option.

On Friday (14/10), Gordhan launched an application in the High Court in Pretoria in the latest development in the ongoing drama around the Gupta family and their alleged abuse of state resources.

In support of his argument that the banks may have had good reason to close the Gupta accounts, Gordhan has attached in his application a document from the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) with transactions. ZNews24
