Justice Minister Ronald Lamola said he would reach out to authorities in Dubai this week to discuss the extradition of the Gupta brothers.
“There are still national instruments that allow law enforcement agencies to cooperate. They must still use those channels to do their jobs.”
The United States has already blacklisted the Guptas and frozen their assets.
Lamola also confirmed that more 50,000 offenders, including 14,000 inmates, will be considered for pardons and remissions by President Cyril Ramaphosa to mark Reconciliation Day.
Lamola said the pardons and remissions that will be carried out over the next year are expected to relieve overcrowding in prisons.
He said the decision is motivated by the low rate of repeat offenders that stands at 1%.
The minister said this is an indication that the correctional service system is effective and many offenders who are forgiven go on to become valuable members of society.
