Bhisho - Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane said on Wednesday she was preparing to respond to court papers on an urgent court application brought by President Cyril Ramaphosa over her remedial action on SARS pension payment to its former commissioner.
Mkhwebane said her office would be filing responding court papers during the course of Wednesday.
She was in the Eastern Cape on a roadshow to follow up on progress on internal complaints resolution units.
Her remarks follow an urgent court application by Ramaphosa on Monday, seeking a declaration from court that he complied with the Public Protector's remedial action against Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan on a matter that involves early retirement payment to former SARS Commissioner Ivan Pillay.
In her report released in May, Mkhwebane found Gordhan to have acted inappropriately during his time as a finance minister when he approved early retirement payout to Pillay.
