The State Capture Commission of Inquiry will today hear evidence relating to the Estina Dairy Farm project. Taking the stand is Paul Edward Holden a researcher employed by Shadow World Investigations.
The multi-million rand Estina dairy project at Vrede in the Free State has been the Commission's focus on several occasions. It was established to benefit emerging farmers but the money to establish the farm allegedly landed in the hands of the Gupta family.
On the stand, Holden told the commission that certain bank statements weren't available to them as they weren't attached to the Asset Forfeiture Unit's court application.
Holden is currently going through the main protagonists. He has now pointed out that Ashu Chawla, who was the COO of Sahara Computers, was also running the logistics of the Gupta enterprise.
Holden also revealed that Chawla was a facilitator and director of how the Gupta offshore funds "were to be dissipated".
