The Hawks have confirmed that a warrant of arrest issued for Ajay Gupta is not related to the Estina Dairy Farm investigation.
The unit's acting head Yolisa Matakata answered questions surrounding the case in a press briefing on Friday.
Eight suspects appeared in the Bloemfontein Regional Court last week, on charges of fraud and money laundering, for allegedly siphoning off funds from the Free State Agriculture Department into Gupta-linked bank accounts.

We are told there are 13 suspects in this particular matter, eight of them appeared in court a week ago so who are these outstanding five people? Well they wouldn't disclose this to us.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
