Lawyer testifies on 300 000 emails known as the "Gupta Leaks"
The Zondo Commission of Inquiry into state capture resumed on Thursday in Parktown, Johannesburg, as lawyer Brian Currin was called to the stand to testify.
Currin's name was not disclosed until he took the stand, says EWN reporter Bonga Dlulane.
He says Advocate Paul Pretorius explained that Currin's name could not be mentioned as his testimony was very sensitive.
Currin is testifying about the contents of three hard drives, known as the "Gupta Leaks" and how he obtained them.
These hard drives contain over 300 000 of emails between the Gupta brothers, Duduzane Zuma and some SOEs head as well as CEOs of international and local companies.Bonga Dlulane, EWN reporter
Pretorius said that these hard drives are owned by Sahara and the person who got hold of these hard drives is not a political person and don't want to be named. He won't tell how he obtained this because of the fear of him exposing the whistleblower.Bonga Dlulane, EWN reporter
According to Dlulane, Sahara had dismissed these emails as fake but Carrin is saying that they are authentic.
He had to convince the whistleblower to hand over the hard drives after lengthy deliberations. He says he didn't trust law enforcement but journalists were one option he used to publicise the information known as "Gupta Leaks".
