The Gupta family released a statement in 2013, claiming that the controversial landing had been carried out with the full permission of the authorities.

This statement had implied that foreign dignitaries and ministers were among the guests who landed at the base.

However, a report released in the same year denied that ex-president Jacob Zuma and his ministers had not been involved in the incident, reports eNCA.

The State Capture Inquiry is investigating the family's rise to the top ranks of South Africa's financial and political spheres.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the family had been slapped with fines after 30 tons worth of waste was removed from a sensitive environment after yet another wedding.
