Johannesburg - A report from a probe into the unauthorised landing of a privately chartered plane at Waterkloof Air Force Base was handed to Justice Minister Jeff Radebe on Tuesday.

Government spokesperson Phumla Williams said Radebe received the report in his capacity as chairman of the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security ministerial cluster.

"A meeting of the relevant ministers will be convened on the 15th May 2013 to study the contents of the report and provide feedback to the general public and members of the media at a press conference on a date to be announced."

On 29 April, a plane chartered by the Gupta family, carrying 270 wedding guests, landed at Waterkloof Air Force Base.

Guests were attending the wedding of Vega Gupta, 23, and Indian-born Aakash Jahajgarhia at Sun City.

The landing sparked widespread criticism.

Government said on 3 May that the landing at the national key point was unauthorised and that a probe was underway into a possible breach of diplomatic protocol.

Radebe said at the time that five high-ranking officials and military personnel had been suspended over the unauthorised landing.

Last Friday, eight Tshwane metro police officers were suspended for allegedly escorting and providing unofficial security to Gupta wedding guests, from Waterkloof to Sun City.
