South African Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane has denied that his handling of the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) report detailing fraud and corruption by his second-in-charge, Jonas Makwakwa, and another employee was unlawful.
This was after Corruption Watch wrote to Moyane informing him that it would lay criminal charges against him.
Corruption Watch said on Wednesday that it was “disturbed” by the manner in which Moyane had handled the case and that his failure to take appropriate action was unlawful, as the commissioner was obliged to report Makwakwa and Kelly-Ann Elskie to the Directorate of Priority Crime Investigation.
Failing to do this could result in imprisonment or a fine, it said.
