Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's attempt to strike the South African Revenue Services (SARS) "rogue unit" report from his Equality Court case against EFF leader Julius Malema has been dismissed.

In a statement, the EFF welcomed the court's dismissal of the strike-out application, which means the inspector-general of intelligence report remains part of the party's court papers. The EFF attached the report as an annexure in responding to the hate speech charges that Gordhan laid against Malema and his deputy, Floyd Shivambu.
