Account records from Standard Bank have revealed an intricate web of alleged money-laundering, through which hundreds of millions of rand from state-owned entities were siphoned to small Gupta-linked shell companies.

The state capture inquiry heard on Tuesday how the Gupta family and their business associates set up a string of companies that scored huge contracts with parastatals such as Eskom and Transnet, and moved money between one another to disguise its source.
