National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) Investigative Directorate spokesperson Sindisiwe Seboka says they relied on both their own evidence and that of the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture to build their case against the former Transnet senior executives and Gupta-linked company executives.

This after the directorate arrested the former Transnet CEO Brian Molefe and the parastatal’s former CFO Anoj Singh on Monday.

The action was in connection with a fraud and corruption case linked to the procurement of over a thousand locomotives which saw the Gupta-linked company, Trillian Capital, gaining a R93 million consulting fee in 2015.

Singh and Molefe appeared in the Palm Ridge Specialised Commercial Crimes Court before they were released on bail of R50 000 each. Their next court appearance is on October 14.
