Forensic investigator Testify Estina Dairy Farm Offshore Money Flows To Gupta

Shadow World Investigations Paul Holden said Estina paid millions of dollars to Gupta offshore companies

SOUTH AFRICA, JOHANNESBURG – Shadow World Investigations, Paul Holden, on Thursday said companies including Estina paid millions of dollars to Gupta offshore companies, and he then he asked why?

Holden testified at the state capture commission about the Estina Dairy Farm offshore money flows, some of which he said were money laundering. He presented forensic evidence that showed how the Guptas opened accounts to launder money from the Free State and closed them as soon as they were done.

According to Holden, the provincial government paid more than R280 million to the Gupta enterprise. And they made another R7 million in interest from those deposits.

Meanwhile, Holden detailed some of the transactions: “The first is the Estina Limited amount which gets paid $8.3 million and I think we have every right to ask why Estina Limited is paying this amount of money to an offshore company.”

He said the Guptas opened fixed deposits and call accounts to receive the Estina money, raised loans against it, and then closed them as soon as the money had gone out.
