There is no truth in the allegations that a delegation from South Africa is to the Emirates and will return with the Guptas.
It has been confirmed that a delegation has indeed travelled to the United Arab Emirates to negotiate the possibility of the extradition of the Guptas, but it may take months before the extradition takes place if the negotiations are carried out successfully.
The delegation, however, is not only focused on the Gupta case, and is said to be discussing other matters with the Emirate government.
Whether negotiations on the Guptas’ extradition will be successful is uncertain, and opinion polls suggest the Guptas may decide to leave the Emirates before a final settlement with South Africa is made.
The delegation of ministers and law enforcement officials is expected to hold talks in Abu Dhabi with representatives of the Emirate government.
