- The suspended South African Revenue Service Commissioner Tom Moyane demands that the president stop all inquiries into SARS
- Moyane also wants the disciplinary hearing against him to be ceased
- If the president did not comply by 4pm on Friday, Moyane will go to the Constitutional or High Court
Tom Moyane, suspended SARS Commissioner, demands that President Ramaphosa cease the SARS inquiries. He also wants the disciplinary inquiry against him to end.
If President Ramaphosa has not yielded by 4pm on Friday, the 6th of July, Moyane will go to court over the matter.
Moyane stated he will approach High Court or the Constitutional Court for an urgent interdict, if necessary.
EWN reported that Moyane was disappointed on Monday when his demands for the SARS inquiry to be stopped was rejected by Judge Robert Nugent.
Moyane wrote a letter to South Africa's president on Monday evening. In it, his lawyer demanded that the SARS inquiry into tax administration and governance be stopped. He also demanded an end to the disciplinary inquiry against him.
According to Moyane, the inquiries are a waste of taxpayers' money, irrational, and unfair.
Furthermore, Moyane demanded the removal of Professor Michael Katz as a member of the SARS commission.
It is also reported that Moyane wants the disciplinary inquiry against him to not depend on an affidavit filed by Minister Pravin Gordhan.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan has filed a brutal affidavit outlining President Ramaphosa’s case against suspended SARS boss Tom Moyane.
In the document Gordhan accuses Moyane of authorising bonus payments for certain executive members at SARS. The minister is also highly critical of Moyane’s handling of the corruption allegations against Jonas Makwakwa.
