Gungubele acknowledged extradition was not an easy process.
“I would be surprised if it does not lead to them coming here. I’d also be surprised if they are not arrested on the basis of exactly what they did in SA, but I wouldn’t say there's a guarantee because that’s not a simple process,” he said.
Earlier this week, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said the extradition process was complex and involved many role players, including the executive.
The NPA said it had an experienced team of internal and external experts working closely with law enforcement and their partners in the criminal justice system on the matter.
“Extradition is a complex process involving many role players, including the executive. It would therefore not be appropriate for the NPA to discuss the details of that process in the media, but we can confirm we are engaging with relevant authorities in SA and UAE,” it said.
