Lawyers for Pravin Gordhan have called on Iqbal Survé to provide evidence to support his claims that the Public Enterprises Minister was behind a raid on his Sekunjalo Investment Holdings premises earlier this week.
In a video circulated on social media, the media boss accuses Gordhan of having a hand in the raid.
"I’m aware that you went to the first judge, the judge said no to you… You went to a second judge who’s a friend of the DA and of Pravin Gordhan"
Malatsi says there's no evidence to support Surve's claims.
