Guptas offer to co-operate with investigators

The Gupta family would co-operate with investigators in the jet saga which has received widespread criticism, a family spokesperson has said.
"We have and will continue to co-operate with the investigators in the interests of the full facts being brought to the fore in this matter," said Gary Naidoo in a statement on Saturday.
We stand by our position ... [and] believe it is in the best interests of the process for the investigations to be completed before we make any further comments."
Naidoo said the family had been inundated with phone calls since the announcement by Justice Minister Jeff Radebe on Friday.
Radebe at the time told reporters that the investigations could include looking into the role the Gupta family played in the saga.
A committee of directors general had been given seven working days to complete a probe and report to Cabinet on how the jet was allowed to illegally land at the air force base in Pretoria.
