JOHANNESBURG - The Bank of Baroda has agreed to hand over Gupta-family bank records to SA civil society organisations, following an access to information request by the Helen Suzman Foundation and Freedom Under Law.

Analyst Magda Wierzycka says court papers on the matter will be filed soon.

"What we are trying to do is establish the precise quantum of money stolen from Eskom for instance Glencore has been very happy to cooperate. The numbers are much large than what has been reported to date,” says Magada Wierzycka, Sygania CEO.

In 2017 the Helen Suzman Foundation filed a lawsuit against President Jacob Zuma, members of his cabinet and the Gupta brothers.

The foundation revealed that the civil claim aims to recover billions of rands it says was stolen from Eskom.
