South African Gupta Family to Answer to U.S. Authorities?

German software giant SAP has shared the status about its South Africa businesses to United States authorities responsible for enforcing the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act following revelations in the #GuptaLeaks emails that revealed that the technology company agreed to pay 10% "sales commission" to a firm controlled by the Guptas in order to secure lucrative business contracts. This comes after reports that the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing the embattled Gupta family in relation to suspicious cash flows between South Africa, Dubai and the U.S.
