 Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's moveable assets will go under the hammer on Friday, his lawyer confirmed.

“As far as I know, I do not think Mr Malema is opposing the sale of the movable assets tomorrow,” his attorney, Tumi Mokwena said on Thursday.

“The propert(ies)... attached are movable stuff and do not include houses and farms.”

Earlier in February, Brian Kahn Attorneys, Malema's former representatives, had been instructed to file papers opposing an application made to the High Court in Pretoria by the SA Revenue Service (Sars) to have Malema's estate sequestrated.

Malema had until February 18 to notify Sars whether he intended to oppose the application.

Mokwena said he could not confirm which property this included, saying that he was not handling the matter.

He added that they received the files on Malema's sequestration application.

The notice to oppose was done on Monday, he added.

“The next step is to sit down and look at the case, to consult with the client and make a decision,” Mokwena said.

“We will formulate our grounds and proceed accordingly. At this stage it is too early to say what we are going to do going forward.” - Sapa
