CAPE TOWN - The suspended South African Revenue Service (Sars) Commissioner, Tom Moyane believes that the Nugent Commission of Inquiry is trying to get rid of him.
Moyane accused the commission of moving towards an outcome that is predetermined and is wholly biased.
Moyane’s attorney, Eric Mabuza, said that he has given President Cyril Ramaphosa a deadline of next Friday to say whether he has accepted the commission’s recommendations or he will be taken to court.
In Moyane’s submissions to Ramaphosa, he asked that the president reject the Nugent Commission's recommendation that he be terminated from Sars.
“The grounds for the proposed rejection of the said recommendations include the fact that they fall outside the terms of reference of the Sars Commission and are accordingly ultra vires and irrational; are also irrational in the sense of being illogical and self-contradictory; are unreasonable in the circumstances; are unfair in the constitutional sense; are tainted by bias; and constitute a thinly veiled attempt to campaign for the permanent appointment of Mr Mark Kingon, who is the acting commissioner, of Sars,” the letter stated.
