Gupta Saxonwold compound raided

The Asset Forfeiture Unit has seized properties, cars and aircraft linked to the politically connected Gupta family worth more than R250m, according to the National Prosecuting Authority.

"The said order is a result of ongoing criminal investigations by the Hawks (DPCI) which led to the arrest and institution of criminal prosecution against the aforesaid entities and individuals‚" the NPA said in a statement.

Around 20 officials entered through the gates of the compound earlier on Monday, while police officers stood outside.

The eight were Estina director Kamal Vasram, several former directors at the Gupta's holding company Oakbay - Varun Gupta, Ronica Ragavan, Nazeem Howa and Ashu Chawla, and Free State officials Peter Thabethe, Sylvia Dlamini and Takisi Masiteng.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane a year ago found the Free State Agriculture Department did not improperly enter into a public/private partnership.

The state then used an interim report by curator Eugene Nel to bring a fresh application for the freezing of Gupta assets.

The case involves a £15 million deal involving a state-backed dairy farm in one of the country's poorest provinces that was meant to help the community.

Alfred Cockerell shared his clients' fears that the aircraft could also end up seized by the AFU, who had already had R10 million frozen from Atul Gupta's personal bank account.
