Cape Town - In a document handed to Parliamentary representatives on Wednesday, civil action group the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) describes attempts by National Treasury in the past to prevent public resources from being "plundered for the benefit of Gupta-linked companies".

OUTA said during a media briefing that the purpose of the document as a whole, is to try and convince members of Parliament why President Jacob Zuma should be removed from office. According to OUTA any one of the matters it raises in the document should be enough to have Zuma removed, let alone all the allegations taken together.

"After he was removed, Pravin Gordhan called on South Africans to connect the dots - and we have done that," said OUTA.
