    BREAKING: State Capture fugitives Rajesh and Atul Gupta arrested

    The Ministry of Justice confirmed the arrest of notorious Gupta brothers – Rajesh and Atul – in a statement on Monday night, 6 June.


    Department spokesperson Chrispin Phiri said the South African government received information from law enforcement authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that the Gupta brothers had been arrested.

    “Discussions between various law enforcement agencies in the UAE and South Africa on the way forward are ongoing. The South African government will continue to cooperate with the UAE,” said Phiri.

    The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) issued a red notice for Rajesh and Atul who are believed to be the masterminds behind the alleged State Capture project in South Africa earlier this year. Their wives, Arthi and Chetali, have no such notice against them.

    The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) dropped the corruption charges against the third Gupta brother, Ajay, in February 2019 and since then he has not been considered a fugitive from justice.

    A red notice is issued when an Interpol member country needs help to locate and arrest wanted individuals with the aim of having them extradited to face criminal charges.

    According to News24, the Gupta brothers were arrested by the Dubai Police Criminal Investigation Department on Friday, 3 June.

    This is a developing story.
