The now infamous Gupta family purchased the R17 million home in 2005.
The AFU was enforcing a court order as part of a probe into the Estina Dairy Farm scandal. Thirteen people are facing charges linked to allegations that R250m in public money meant for poor Free State dairy farmers was siphoned off by the Guptas.
The Constantia property and other assets were placed “under restraint pending finalisation of the criminal case”, said National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku earlier this week. Court documents allege their properties and other assets were purchased with the “proceeds of crime”.
The Dawn Avenue property is listed in NPA affidavits as being owned by Islandsite Investments One Hundred & Eighty (Pty) Ltd, a Gupta company that has since been placed under business rescue.
