[LISTEN] Today is the day: NPA serves Gupta-linked Trillian & McKinsey papers

Law enforcement agencies appear to be advancing rapidly in the investigation into State Capture. Over the past 24 hours at least 14 people have been linked to the alleged corruption by the Gupta-linked Trillian, and consultancy firm McKinsey.

NPA spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku chats to Ray White on The Midday Report about the status of arrests and the NPA’s action.

Mfaku says that in terms of arrests, they have categorically stated that the investigations are ongoing and adds that on 14 December, a briefing with the team that is overseeing prosecutorial guidance to the Hawks' investigators took place.

The team is not ready, there are still outstanding aspects in the investigation.

Mfaku adds that when you have international involvement, you need to conduct a variety of investigations. He adds that after outstanding issues are completed, those that are implicated will be held accountable.

As a curator, you need to ensure that you provide a bond of security, equivalent to the value of the preservation, hence there was a delay in terms of serving the order.

Luvuyo Mfaku, NPA spokesperson

Their lawyers have been engaging with our officials, says Mfaku. He adds that they are going to serve Trillian and McKinsey with the papers today. There will be a meeting between their lawyers and official’s tomorrow he adds.

They are cooperating with the NPA. They have indicated their willingness to ensure that the matter is settled out of court.
