South Africa’s justice minister insists members of the Gupta family, who have been implicated in looting billions of rand from state coffers, will be extradited from Dubai and be forced to explain their actions.

“There is no other way, they have to come back and account,” Ronald Lamola said in an interview last week. “We will follow all the protocols and we will do whatever it takes to get them back here.”
