Cape Town – The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) on Friday laid charges of fraud, corruption and high treason against Public Enterprises director general Mogokare Richard Seleke, following media reports of his alleged involvement in deals that benefited the Gupta family.

"Seleke was the cut-out who passed confidential e-mails from Eskom to the Guptas, inserted himself into state-owned enterprises (SOEs) deals and helped the Guptas use confidential information to buy a cheap mine and rip off billions of rand from South Africa,” OUTA said in a statement.

In June, the Sunday Times reported that someone with the email address "Business Man" leaked important information to the Gupta family about deals with SOEs.
