I hope he gets asked who this Mr A Singh is who the Guptas paid R600 000 in Dubai… and the shell company AS Global that was set up in parallel, and also received R600 000… and the shell company called Venus Limited that was set up in a secrecy haven in the UAE by the Guptas for Anoj Singh. They gave it to him! Why?— Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism
The pattern is not in his favour, nor is the clear, direct evidence.— Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism
Eskom’s former Chief Financial Officer, Anoj Singh, was grilled on Tuesday by the committee investigating allegations of state capture at Eskom.
He denied that the Gupta family, or any entity linked to them, paid for any of his trips to Dubai in 2015 and 2016.
His denial came despite being presented with an invoice made out to Gupta-owned Sahara Computers for a trip he admitted he took.
Singh did, however, admit to staying in the same hotel, at the same time, as the Guptas on, at least, one occasion.
