The parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs says it has resolved to dig “deeper” into controversial Gupta family’s South African citizenship.

Committee chairperson Hlomani Chauke told Power fm this morning  that a full inquiry will be undertaken later this year to probe how the family had been granted citizenship.

Last year, the Department of Home Affairs had confirmed that only Atul and Rajesh were naturalised and not Ajay Gupta.

“We need to look at what information the Guptas presented when they arrived in the country, what status were they carrying and how many were they when they came here,” Chauke told hosts Bob Mabena and Thabo Mdluli.

On Monday, the High Court in Bloemfontein ruled in favour of Gupta-linked companies and individuals who challenged a provisional restraint order to freeze their assets, which amount to about R200-million.

In handing down the order, judge Philip Loubser said there were no reasonable grounds to conclude that the eight people arrested in relation to the Estina dairy project should have their assets frozen. ')}
