- Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has decided to accept hard drives with emails on them as evidence in the state capture inquiry
- The thousands of emails allegedly prove the Gupta family's state capture activities
- Zondo stated that no one would be able to access these hard drives before it was presented at the commission
After listening to arguments on why the emails on the #GuptaLeaks hard drives should be accepted as evidence, Raymond Zondo ruled that it would be so.
However, there are certain conditions. No one outside the commission will be able to access the original data or copies of it until it was presented at the commission.
Anyone who wants access to the hard drives before then will need special permission from the commission.
The hard drives contain emails (hundreds of thousands of them) that is believed to have details of just how deep the Guptas' state capture goes.
The State Capture Inquiry will continue on the 3rd of October, when Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene will testify.
