The Guptas’ Transnet Laundromat (Part Two): Inside the Guptas’ HSBC washing machine

Last month, Shadow World Investigations (SWI) made a detailed submission to the Zondo Commission on State Capture, tracing and explaining the full details of the money laundering vehicles used by the Gupta enterprise in stealing and hiding vast kickbacks from Transnet contracts. SWI is now making the submission public. In the second of three articles picking out the highlights of the submission, SWI traces how major Chinese state rail manufacturers paid more than $140m to Gupta front companies in Hong Kong, and how this money was immediately injected into two separate money laundering systems.
