The large media contingent is here. We are all waiting anxiously to find out if there is anything the Gupta lawyer is able to tell us as to what has been seized and if there is anything they can tell the media at this stage.

If there is any other corruption cases linked here, I think that will be a matter we will be able to have clarity on in a short while if anyone will be willing to all to us and shed some light on what is happening.
