Prosecutors asking for month-long postponement to allow their boss Batohi to consider recommendations that there are no prospects of a successful prosecutionThree former executives of the SA Revenue Service (Sars), will have to wait until next month to know if they will face a criminal trial for their role in the activities of the so-called rogue unit.

Tomorrow, the Pretoria Magistrates’ Court will be asked by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to postpone the case against Ivan Pillay, Johann van Loggerenberg and Andries Janse van Rensburg until next month. The month-long postponement will allow NPA boss Shamila Batohi to consider recommendations of a review panel which was tasked to look into the prospect of success for the case.
