Negotiations regarding these treaties between SA and the UAE began in 2010 and have now finally come to a point.

The HeraldLIVE reports that Michael Masutha, South Africa's justice minister, could possibly use the agreement to have the Guptas extradited from the UAE and stand trial in SA.

The agreement makes it possible for the countries to help each other in criminal and legal cases.

The Gupta brothers are charged with corruption and fraud but did not have to face the consequences of their actions yet.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the Gupta family was able to exert a significant amount of influence of the contract between the Vrede Dairy Farm, Estina and the Free State agricultural department.

There is also damning evidence that the money from the contract was used to fund the lavish wedding of the Guptas at Sun City.
