South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority said Interpol issued red notices for two Gupta brothers wanted in connection with alleged corruption.

The notices were issued for Atul and Rajesh Gupta and their wives, and four other people, Hermione Cronje, head of the National Prosecuting Authority’s investigating directorate, said in a statement on Monday.

“Efforts to bring the Guptas back have intensified,” she said.

South African authorities accuse the Gupta family of using their links with former President Jacob Zuma to secure deals to loot state-owned companies. President Cyril Ramaphosa has estimated that more than R500 billion was stolen from the state during Zuma’s rule. The Guptas deny any wrongdoing.

“A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.”

Hmmm…. does this also apply to the ME and India? Just wondering…

From a quick Google search, it looks like Interpol has a special relationship with the member countries of the United Nations (194 countries in total). Furthermore, South Africa recently signed an extradition agreement with the UAE. So good luck to the Guptas, the net is closing.

From your mouth to …

Why should Interpol treat this any differently than the way S A treated Omar al-Bashir ?

and for that matter Zuma?

Why is there not a red order against Dudezane Zuma?

Zuma Jnr, has not fled the country, in fact this weekend he violated at least two laws (that we know of) – illegal gathering and failing to wear a face mask but he wasn’t arrested. Like his Dad, he’s above the law in SA and he knows it. He won’t be fleeing the country because its better for him here where he can operate with impunity. That’s the big difference between Zuma Jnr and the Guptas.

What is China’s attitude to Interpol? The biggest pot of money relates to the China Rail bribe money sitting in Hong Kong if I remember correctly. In terms of the US sanctions that can already not be transacted in USD to anywhere in the world.

Any truth in the rumour that they will be given a heroes welcome at OR Tambo by Zuma supporters who will proceed to give them a human shield because ‘what have they done wrong’. I also see a role for Carl Niehaus here.

to be quite honest, i think the guptas will rather prefer waterkloof airport again, although it won’t be able to handle such a large welcoming committee – but one can be sure CN will be there to play some or other role

If the Guptas are extradited to SA, please remind them to also bring their Bank of Dubai/India/Panama cheque books.

I think that they clever crooks … why waste the stolen loot?

They definitely gonna spending R50 billion all out before they land in SA

Now why didn’t the Scorpions do this !!! ?? Oh silly me, the ruling party, the cANCer, unilaterally disbanded hem because they were … too good at their jobs You were there Mbeki, Manuel, Mboweni, Sexwale and Ramaphosa and all the other so-called ‘good guys’. Shameful gangsters the lot of them

You right. The Scorpions were doing a damn good job.

So good that they investigated the Politicians.

Yes, Mbeki, Manuel, Mboweni, Sexwale and Ramaphosa … they knew very well that the cracks were appearing.

Why does Ramaphosa not re-instate the Scorpions? I think we will see the whole ANC in jail. We would have the make the whole of SA Robben Island.

Is there an accompanying Red Notice for the Zumas and the rest of the ANC.

What happened to the third stooge : Ajay seems left out
