EFF tells court 'horse has bolted' on disclosure of SARS 'rogue unit' report

The EFF has told the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria that an application by State Security Minister Ayanda Dlodlo to have a top-secret Inspector General of Intelligence (IGI) report kept secret is an abuse of judicial resources.

  Dlodlo forged ahead with her court bid to keep a 2014 report by the IGI into the SARS "intelligence" or "rogue unit" secret despite the EFF having already published it on its website. Counsel for the party further enforced its argument by pointing out that the report was part of court records because it was filed by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane as well as being an annexure to EFF leader Julius Malema's affidavit.

  Dlodlo tendered a redacted version of the report on Tuesday, and it is now up to the court to decide whether the unredacted version will remain part of the public record.
