Several suspects were released on bail last week. Five others remain at large.

Mbalula said Ajay Gupta had initially agreed to hand himself over to police but failed to keep his word, forcing the Hawks to declare him a fugitive.

The minister says 17 cases of state capture are being investigated.

Mbalula refused to answer whether former President Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzana is among the suspects.
