Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan will on Tuesday tell the High Court in Pretoria that he would suffer irreparable harm if the Public Protector’s remedial action was carried out as set out in the investigation into the so-called South African Revenue (Sars) rogue unit.

Gordhan is asking the court to interdict the enforcement of the remedial action against himself, pending a review of the report at a later stage.

The advocate directed the president to take appropriate disciplinary action against Gordhan within 30 days of the release of the report.
