| Disputed secret intelligence report slams SARS, Gordhan and gushes over the SSA

- | 4 months ago

The report, marked as “secret” and which was leaked to the EFF and attached to court papers by the party‘s leaders, Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu, mirrors similar findings made in a range of investigations into the SARS investigations unit, including the report by the Sikhakane panel, the Kroon report and the KPMG report.

Both the Kroon and KPMG reports have been disavowed by their owners. Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane also found that the SARS investigation unit conducted its affairs illegally and that action must be taken against a range of individuals involved in the investigations unit, including Gordhan (who was SARS commissioner until 2009), his deputy Ivan Pillay and Johann van Loggerenberg, who managed the unit.

Andries Janse van Rensburg, Ivan Pillay and Johan van Loggerenberg appear in the Pretoria Magistrates‘ Court.
