Open Letter to Pravin Gordhan

By Jeff Koorbonally – is the official complainant/ key state witness in the claim by the Surtie family for their offshore inheritance with the Capital amount of $ 36 billion Dollars, plus 25 years interest @ 12,5% p/a to 2010 & further 5 years interest 2010-2015 grand total of $193,5 bn which when converted to Zar on the lowest rate of R10 to Dollar equates to: R1,935 Trillion.

Dear Hon Minister Gordhan

In the same manner on the open letter addressed to the Public Protector (Thuli Madonsela), I will skip the introductory part.

As a person of interest very well known to you & your predecessor (Trevor Manuel) and all the institutions over which you have oversight, including but not limited to Treasury, Sarb, FSb, which are implicated in this most serious financial crime.

I have been in silence for far too long (8 years) with this highly sensitive matter, with great hope that you the man who portrays himself as a man of integrity (Angel/Messiah of S.A) to the Public of this country, would address and resolve same, in the efficient, discreet & amicable way, which would be in the best interest of the RSA.

It has become apparent and crystal clear to me that you & your predecessor’s priorities are wrong. You choose to pursue the protection of the interest of the “Spiderweb” operation, rather than the interest of the country & the poor people of this country, who put you in your current position.

I call upon you as one of the Key Ministers in this country to stand up & expose the Corruption that is destroying the economy of our beloved country, in the same manner that you have just done!

“Finance Minister lifts lid on Guptas’ R6.8bn ‘suspicious transactions’
15 OCTOBER 2016 – 17:54 PM

Your next step now is: “Please publicly disclose to the Public of this country the (alleged) corruption that you & your predecessor, in your capacities as Finance Ministers, & in conjunction with Tito Mboweni & Gill Marcus in their capacities as Governors of the Sarb as well as Maria Ramos in her capacity as Absa group Ceo have been hiding since the dawn of our democracy, when this ministry became fully aware of it in 1996, as revealed by the Ciex investigations & report thereof.

The biggest State Capture/ financial terrorism, warfare style is orchestrated by the broederbond, who have  enriched themselves with hundreds of billions, since 1996  to date; the main beneficiaries being Anglo American (Oppenheimers) in their bank shares in both FNB and Sarb & Remgro in their shares in Absa, Sarb & Fnb. The Last beneficiaries being Absa & Sarb in terms of all the brokerage fees, commissions & underwriting fees & profits which derived from the illegal bond issues whereby the Surtie family offshore inheritance was illegal laundered into.

#Tell the public of S.A. that your Ministry is now sitting with a Huge claim (Liability) from the Surtie family for their offshore inheritance with the Capital amount of $ 36 billion Dollars, plus 25 years interest @ 12,5%p/a to 2010 & further 5 years interest 2010-2015 grand total of $193,5. converted to Zar on the lowest rate of R10 to Dollar it equates to: R1,935 Trillion.

This inheritance was politically blocked and retained in a Special Restricted account Antrecode 0000/4444 held at the Reserve Bank on behalf on finance ministry since 1985 during the Sanctions Era, whereby the apartheid regime amended the currency exchange act to legalise what they did.

#Tell the public of this country that the same Act was amended in 1996 to be in-line with the new constitution, as it became unconstitutional, hence the Surtie inheritance should have been released at this point, but Finance Ministry decided to launder it into Stock markets .

#Tell the Public of this country that the Finance Ministry failed or chose not to comply with the law of advertising this unclaimed inheritance on the Government Gazette & further failed with any attempt to trace the beneficiaries on their last known address as also compelled by law to be done.

#Tell the Public of this country that your Ministry decided to further launder the Surtie family offshore inheritance into the fiscus system by means of re issue of same bonds in 1996 & registration of them with BESA & putting them on Trade with both, first (JSE) & secondary World Stock markets (US,UK & others) and therefore committing the most serious act of money laundering & a serious violation of World Stock Markets rules & regulation.

#Tell the Public of S.A. that I, Jeff Koorbanally acting with full power and authority on the Surtie matter, has given you an amicable settlement proposal, in the very best interest of this country’s economic crisis that: Govt retains 2 thirds of the interest due & pay the Surtie’s only a third of the interest due and further said that the Government can retain the investment of the Capital for an indefinite period & reduce the interest rate to current repo rate or less.

#Tell them (Public) of S.A, that you Mr untouchable chose to ignore me, with your intention for me to take the matter to court so that you can waste taxpayers’ money defending the crimes of the Apartheid regime.

#Tell them that you instructed DG Lungisa Fuzile not to give me co-operation in his capacity as Treasury Information Officer in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) as enshrined by the constitution, when I requested access to the investor name & more of these said Bonds of corruption.

#Tell them you did likewise and told Governor of Sarb Lesetja Kganyago not to give me any co-operation when I requested access to information on account Entrecode 0000/4444 (State blocked account) and told him to intimidate me with Dr De Jarger head of Sarb legal counsel.

#Tell them you also instructed FSB Ceo & Deputy Adv Tshidi & Chanetsa to do likewise and not to give me any co-operation in my call to them to open up a full probe on Absa/Barclays and to recover the hundreds of billions they benefited from with this corruption & impose appropriate fines/penalties in line with the Stock Market rules.

Lastly it is my submission that your arrogance is going to cost this country. If you believe you are going to get away with the Surtie claim, then you making the biggest mistake that will results in the total economic crash of our country.

As I told you previously that you will leave me no other option but to execute what I put on hold at an international level with (IOSCO, G20, BIS,US & Uk Securities Commission IMF, World Bank).

Your Ministry has been fooling the people of this country for far too long by pointing & blaming everyone else for the economic crisis & prevention of corruption when the real cause is from within, failure to properly manage the finance of this Democratic Govt. “This all paints a picture of a dereliction of duty by the people who should be doing oversight and enforcing compliance, which is the national treasury.”

What this ministry does instead is to go on media platforms making big deceiving statements undermining and insulting our intelligence, as black people, in the same manner that the Apartheid regime did.

Let me spell it out without fear or favour: You Hon Minister and your predecessor have the “Gift of the Gab”. Our country doesnt need such people in this key position. We need people with a clear vision & dedication, with strong financial management skills, not talking skills! You and your predecessor lack in that important area of skills, that’s not an insult or personal attack but a fact, if you take into account the billions we have lost in corruption when you (Finance Ministry) have access to all resources including audit – internal & external – plus the auditor general.

Then you blame it all on the “President” making him the scapegoat. If your ministry was doing the job assigned to you by the constitution, none of what’s flying around the media would exist.

Lastly let me answer the question that might be ringing in you mind right now: “With all these allegations, why haven’t I referred them to the law- enforcement agencies?”

The Answer is: “I certainly have!” In fact it is currently sitting at the highest level of the National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) and Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations (DPCI). What they do with the matter and when they will decide to prosecute is at their discretion.

What I can confirm is that I presented a very strong case against your ministry/Treasury, Sarb & Absa
In terms of violation of several Acts including but not limited to
#Public Finance Management Act #Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act,
#Prevention of Organised Crime Act 121 of 1998. (POCA)
#Financial Intelligence Centre Act (38 of 2001) – FICA

I am the official complainant/ key state witness in the matter, should and when it goes for prosecution. Rest assured that I am a very a credible witness with specific facts that will result in the successful prosecution of all accused in this matter. What is currently on media is just the tip off the iceberg in terms of prosecution corrupt related activities by the very people entrusted with the authority and power to prevent same.

The perception that you portray to the Public, that you are the Angel/Messiah of S.A, is just the opposite and also that you think are above the law & untouchable is a myth! This is the beginning of the end of corrupt office bearers & corruption in this country of which we fought for with blood & sweat! You were part of that struggle and soon after you got into the gravy train, all is forgotten! Instead of protecting our Democracy, you choose to protect the corruption of the of Oppressor.

  1. Hi PK sorry for for getting you I the whole messed up family. I spoke to Farouk Sumi thiis everning and he told me that it is my meddling into this whole affair that is causing all this heck ups.All I want to know is why is this matter so confidential within this family.Pls I beck you and Mr Jeff just to tell us what’s going on I don’t want that money for me it’s blood money I never worked for it and yet there is family members that will sell there souls for this money thank for all u done PK and Mr Jed .In closing the facts of this is hidin and will come out God bless and have a owesome festive

  2. Once again no response who is lying the family member are fighting lick dogs Iam ashamed to be a Surtie and a South African it is sad how many more years

    1. Dear Faizel

      I have spoken to your sister and you as a family need to take-up this issue with the family council.
      Ask your Aunt Shereen who had organised a family meeting some few weeks ago.



  3. I am very disappointed to how this is being handled, the blame of ‘time being waisted”; We still at zero and yet to find out that there is a formed committee in Lesotho representing this Surtie case yet, I AM A SURTIE myself being the great grandson of the late E.N.Mahomed; this requires exposure to the media. This rich is getting richer and the poor is getting poorer.

  4. That is why the poor remains poor and rich continue to be reach.
    Our children can easily be freely educated and their parents who has been declared unemployable can be taken care of without any problem.
    What to do to expose this further n how well n tide will be the our protection n security?
    Why is nothing done to this day?

  5. I find the case presented in this open letter, as well as the one addressed to the former Public Protector, to make for an interesting read. If the allegations made here have any substance, which appears to be the case, I fervently hope that all the guilty parties are prosecuted, just as the Rupert family should be prosecuted and punished if the case presented against them turns out to be true.

    What I can’t stand in this contribution is the reference to ‘the oppressor’, without clarifying that the reference applies to a smallish group of people, who are defined by their greed and not their pigmentation.

    I also am left with a sense of disquiet that these letters are being circulated in a fashion that seeks to justify corruption in government, or to at least play it down, because the scale of the alleged wrongdoing in the letter is so much bigger.

    I believe that all corruption must be prosecuted and penalties/punishment imposed.

  6. it is interesting to read the open letter to pravin from Mr Jeff it seems that we get to the bottom of corruption now and at the most trusted department of gov this must be resolved as soon as possible

  7. This is scary South Africans. Representing South African the poor of the poorest( as 99% says “we believe in the Superpower”), I pray that the Ministry comply with the demand by the family within 74 hours to protect the wealth and dignity of this country thereby putting big stop to this corruption and stubbornness of those we put on power. We ask the State Prisident to issue an instruction within a day to avoid yet another embarrassment of our country. Surely we do not want the whole world to know about this scandal. We pray for wisdom and protection of the family representative that no weapon should prevail against him.
