Here is the Guptas' full affidavit

Jan 20 2017 15:59

Johannesburg - Gupta-linked Oakbay Investments has filed its affidavit in the North Gauteng High Court as it takes aim at  Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and South Africa's banks.

Oakbay Investments has slammed Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan's court application regarding the company as "superflous" and "riddled with factual and legal errors".

Oakbay Investments' lawyer, Gert van der Merwe, filed papers in the North Gauteng High Court on Friday in response to Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s bid to obtain a court order regarding the closure of Oakbay Investments' bank accounts.

Oakbay Investments, in a statement issued on Friday, said its court papers would say that Gordhan’s bid is unnecessary because there is no dispute about the matter.

The Guptas also asked the court on Friday to "decline to grant the relief" sought by Gordhan and to dismiss the minister's application with costs.
