Jared Watson, the CEO's nephew, has confirmed the documents are authentic and that Watson had intended to provide the inquiry with evidence in the form of a timeline.

Agrizzi has denied the claims, saying that the truth is 'out there', verified by investigators from the inquiry itself:

"Bear in mind they are allegations they have not been brought before the Zondo commission or SARS [inquiry]. The claims made by the Watsons are merely to deflect attention."

Briefly.co.za reported that Watson had died in a supposed car accident outside of OR Tambo International Airport, days before he was expected to answer to allegations against him for the first time.

Agrizzi had claimed that the company had dished out bribes, gifts and financial support to politicians in exchange for their favour and business opportunities.
