The bravado, But almost as quickly I said to him loudly, why not? Eight years agoI did a story on plenty of peoplenot just models and actressesgoing out and getting themselves cosmetic surgeries as if it were the new takeout Plastic surgeons I spoke to were unabashed in letting out details of women celebrities one would never imagine who had gone under the knife I spoke with several of them; each one admitted to the surgery on the phone but requested me not to mention their names I didnt (One ageing but celebrated beauty denied it; she said she had never even had a facial) But a brave new list of names cropped up One of them was a former colleague at

interest in designer clothes or what is purported to be a glamorous life She wrote about her surgery This was eight years agobut India has super-sped its way to become the fourth largest country for plastic surgeries in the world this year Oftenits just about looking better and feeling better But we cannot ignore the roles played by a greater spending capacity amongst Indians as well as far better medical facilities that are available now There are enough people who surgically change themselves not because they have a need or an urge tobut just because the choice is available to themand at a relatively inexpensive price There are fewer people these days who argue we mustnt meddle with nature and that its unethicaland there are fewer people listening I honestly wish more people took

Johannesburg | Published: October 17 2016 5:13 am South African President Jacob Zuma (AP Photo) Top News South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has revealed in a court affidavit distributed by the Treasury on Sunday that 68 billion rand ($490 million) in payments made by wealthy brothers Ajay Atul and Rajesh Gupta companies they control and other individuals with the same surname have been reported to authorities as suspicious since 2012 The three Indian-born businessmen are the subject of an official investigation into allegations that they have had undue influence over President Jacob Zuma The payments in question whose destinations were not disclosed in the document provided by Gordhan were ascribed to the three brothers their nephew Varun Gupta numerous companies that they control as well as other individuals named as Chetali Gupta Shivani Gupta and Arti Gupta Reuters could not establish whether all these individuals were members of the same family Gordhan’s court submission caps a week of high drama in which he was charged with fraud by approving early retirement for a deputy commissioner in 2010 while Gordhan was head of the tax agency and re-hiring him as a consultant – a charge that Gordhan said was politically motivated Gordhan has for months been at odds with Zuma not least over the alleged political influence of the Gupta brothers but is looked to by edgy financial markets as a guarantor of stability Gordhan’s submission dated Oct 13 is a request to the High Court in Pretoria for a declaratory judgment that he cannot interfere with decisions by South Africa’s major banks to cut their ties with businesses owned by the Gupta brothers Gordhan’s submission had the effect of airing what he considered to be evidence supporting his concerns about the Gupta brothers’ political influence The Gupta brothers are close to Zuma and the subject of a just-finished report by the outgoing Public Protector a constitutionally-mandated anti-graft official into allegations that they influenced the appointment of ministers It was prevented from being made public on Friday by Zuma’s application to the High Court to delay its release Zuma has denied granting undue influence to the brothers and they have denied seeking it Nevertheless they said in August that they planned to exit all of their South African investments Several banks and companies have cut ties this year with the Gupta brothers’ investment vehicle Oakbay Investments without publicly disclosing their reasons They included South Africa’s top four banks: Standard Bank Nedbank Barclays Africa’s Absa and First National Bank (FNB) part of FirstRand REQUEST TO INTERVENE Gordhan says in his 96-page submission to the court that Oakbay “demanded that on behalf of the government I intervene with the banks to achieve a reversal of their decision” Gordhan supported his assertion by attaching correspondence between himself and Nazeem Howa the chief executive of Oakbay Investments although the letters viewed by Reuters did not appear to provide evidence of undue pressure Neither Howa nor the Treasury responded to requests for comment by phone and email and an Oakbay spokesperson said the firm would not comment on the issue A lawyer representing the Gupta family did not respond to an email seeking comment However on Sunday the Oakbay-controlled ANN7 television news network cited unnamed Oakbay sources as rejecting allegations of wrongdoing In one of the attached letters Howa said that 7500 jobs were at risk as the company could not function without the support of local banks “Given your strong relationship with the captains of industry I implore you help us save the jobs … I look forward to hearing from you about any possible assistance you are able to offer” Howa wrote in the letter dated April 17 2016 In another letter dated May 24 Howa said “we seem to have no options open to us other than our appeal to you for assistance” Gordhan also included in his affidavit advice from his lawyers stating that no minister nor the cabinet as a whole had “any power to intervene in the banker-client relationship” The affidavit includes a report from the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) a government anti-money-laundering agency listing 52 payments worth a total of 68 billion rand that were reported to the FIC between 2012 and 2016 presumably by the banks entrusted with them It also included 20 cases of “multiple transactions” with no amounts specified The FIC requires banks to notify it of transactions that appear potentially improper It says the transactions were “reported or sent to the centre in terms of Section 29” of the FIC Act which deals with transactions regarded as “suspicious and unusual” “SERIOUS STATE OF AFFAIRS” Gordhan’s affidavit says that the FIC report “reflects the increasingly serious state of affairs which has arisen” adding: “This is illustrated by the number and scale of reported transactions linked to Oakbay” The FIC report did not say why the transactions were regarded as suspicious and did not disclose who reported them or to whom they were directed Nor did it say whether any had eventually been found to be improper Reuters was unable to independently confirm any details about the transactions A spokesman for Standard Bank said on Saturday that the bank could not comment and the three other major banks did not respond to requests for comment The FIC also did not respond to a request for comment Although the Gupta brothers’ relationship with Zuma has been a source of controversy for years it burst into the open in March when Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas said in a statement that he had been offered his previous boss’s job as finance minister by unnamed members of the Gupta family Gordhan who had been finance minister from 2009 to 2014 was put back in the job in December after Zuma sacked Nhlanhla Nene and replaced him with the little-known backbencher Des van Rooyen triggering a crash in the rand currency and sending banking shares sharply lower The Gupta family issued an emphatic denial of Jonas’s allegation at the time Zuma told parliament in March that he was not the right man to question on the allegations “If Jonas says he was offered by the Guptas I think you will be well-placed to ask the Guptas or Jonas Don’t ask me Where do I come in” he said “I never offered Jonas the ministry That’s why he is the deputy minister” For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | Peshawar |
