‘My visa was cleared fairly quickly within a matter of a day’ – ex-ANN7 editor tells state capture inquiry
Former editor of TV news channel ANN7, Rajesh Sundaram, has told the judicial commission on inquiry into allegations of state capture that Gupta associate Ashu Chawla used his influence to bypass procedures to help him obtain his work permits.
Sundaram was testifying before inquiry chairperson, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Monday.
He said before he came to South Africa, he did research on how to obtain a visa.
But when he realised that it was going to take a while for him to obtain one, Infinity media shareholder Laxmi Goel told him that they had a “setting with the high office in South Africa” and that the visa would be done in no time.
