Estina dairy farm suspects appear in court

Date: Feb 14, 2018

Gupta family is being accused of siphoning money from the state illegally

Members of the media were barred from entering a Blomefontein Regional Court room this morning where seven suspects, including one of the Gupta-brothers and Free State Agriculture Department Head are appearing. 

Five suspects were arrested during the raid of the Gupta-linked properties in Johannesburg yesterday. The other two suspects handed themselves over this morning. 

The Hawks say the raids are just the start of a larger operation targeting those allegedly involved in fraud, corruption, theft and money laundering which is believed to be linked to state capture and irregularities at the Estina dairy farm in Vrede in the Free State. 

Our reporter Ishmael Modiba was there and he spoke to Stephem Kirker.
