The legal teams for the Guptas and Duduzane Zuma want a chance to question witnesses, some of whom have put them at the centre of plans to loot the public purse.
They want to cross-examine witnesses, including former government spokesperson Themba Maseko and ex-African National Congress MP Vytie Mentor and former Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas, however, it seems that they don't want to be cross-examined.
Specialist reporter at Tiso Blackstar Karyn Maughan says the argument is around Ajay Gupta and Rajesh Gupta having both made applications to cross-examine the witnesses.
