Gupta family lawyer, Gert van der Merwe

The Law Society of the Northern Provinces to investigate the Gupta family lawyer, Gert van der Merwe, following the Democratic Alliance’s request.

Van der Merwe wants to be indemnified from prosecution in a R16-million corruption and money laundering case he is accused of being part of, yet Van der Merwe’s claim that he did not “knowingly, intentionally or actively participate in any criminal activities” contradicts what he submitted in the Section 204 affidavit.

“We look forward to the findings of the investigation.” said DA

“If the investigation should prove that van der Merwe has failed to meet the high ethical standards expected, the DA will push for him to be struck off the roll.”
