CAPE TOWN - South African Revenue Service (Sars) Commissioner Tom Moyane owes Parliament an explanation as to why he reinstated Jonas Makwakwa.
Jonas Malwakba after a suspension and a probe into suspicious payments into his account is set to return to work.
According to advocate Terry Motau the current chairperson within Sars, Makwakwa has been cleared of all charges
However, The Financial Intelligence Centre flagged a substantial number of deposits into bank accounts linked to Makwakwa and another Sars employee, Kelly-Ann Elskie, founded in a report to Sars in May last year.
Moyane and Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba were approached by Parliament’s Standing Committee on Finance for a copy of the report that clears Makwakwa of all charges.
“There should be a full report in the public domain. It’s particularly important because Sars is being challenged in many respects and we need confidence in it. It’s in its own interests that it releases the report", says Chairperson Yunus Carrim.
Sars will appear before a governmental committee on 28 November to present its annual financial report.
The report hearing was delayed because of a dispute with the Auditor-General over the payment of bonuses, thus Sars has threatened to take the AG to court.
