South Africa’s ports have all been placed on high alert to ensure that Ajay Gupta does not flee the country.
Ajay Gupta is now officially considered to be a fugitive after he failed to hand himself over to police.
The Hawks have appealed to Ajay to turn himself in.
He is wanted for his alleged involvement in the Estina dairy farm scandal where R200 million went missing.
Hawks spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says they have not heard any indication from him or his lawyers.
He says: “Operationally we would want to make sure because he is a flight risk, everything is in place. We just have to wait and see if they are going to comply as we have requested however, that does not mean we are not doing anything and it is a two way process. It’s for them to reply and for us to look for him.”
