Gordhan 'aggrieved' by 'nonsensical' Survé raid allegations

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.

It is sad when people make these kind of statements without any thread of evidence.

The allegations are scandalous and defamatory.

On Wednesday the Financial Sector Conduct Authority issued a statement saying its search and seizure operation at the Sekunjalo offices were part of a market manipulation probe.
