Johannesburg - Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane has announced that she will appeal the judgment by the North Gauteng High Court.
On Monday morning, the high court granted Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan an interdict to halt the remedial action laid out by Mkhwebane in the SA Revenue Service (Sars) so-called "rogue unit" report against him.
Gordhan had lodged an urgent application to suspend and interdict the remedial orders by the public protector on her so-called rogue unit, citing "improper motives" on her part.
Mkhwebane had found that the establishment of the unit was unlawful and that Gordhan, who was Sars commissioner at the time, had violated the Constitution.
Mkhwebane in a statement said she was disappointed in Monday's judgment, adding that Judge Sulet Potterill "overreached".
