Cape Town - Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs is conducting the second phase of the investigation into the process followed in the naturalisation of the controversial Gupta family.

The hearings are set to be conducted over three days and the committee has warned those set to appear before the inquiry that hostile witnesses will not be treated with kid gloves.
