The investigative directorate of the NPA was allocated R38m to commence its work.
Earlier this year, President Cyril Ramaphosa appointed advocate Hermione Cronje to head the investigative directorate of the NPA to focus on state capture crimes.
The directorate was funded, but the national director of public prosecutions expressed concern at the lack of funding for the NPA.
The Sunday Times understands that authorities in SA are working with the US to recover money looted by the Guptas. Money held in bank accounts in the US and even the UK by the Guptas may be seized.
NPA communication head Bulelwa Makeke said: “The services of these experienced advocates will be to assist the ID in their investigative work and where necessary, with the actual prosecution of matters.”
