Lawyers representing suspended South African Revenue Service commissioner Tom Moyane, have given President Cyril Ramaphosa until Friday to respond to their demand that he halts one or both of the revenue’s inquiries. In a letter to President Ramaphosa the lawyers say failure to do so will force their client to approach the Constitutional Court. On Monday, head of the SARS Inquiry into Tax Administration and Governance, retired judge Robert Nugent, dismissed Moyane’s bid to have the inquiry stopped.
Joining us in the studio is the former SARS Commissioner’s legal representative, Advocate Eric Mabuza. Threats of legal action abound when it comes to the inquiry into the South African Revenue Service. Lawyers acting for the suspended SARS commissioner, Tom Moyane, have demanded that President Cyril Ramaphosa halt the inquiry. And they’ve given him until Friday to respond. The chair of the commission, former Judge Robert Nugent, dismissed a similar request earlier this week and called it a disgrace. Meanwhile, in a new development, lawyer for Moyane, Dali Mpofu, has threatened to take legal action against legal commentator, Pierre de Vos. De Vos has argued that the attacks by Moyane’s team on the SARS commission may be politically motivated and unethical. To discuss we’re joined by another lawyer for Moyane, Erik Mabuza.
