South Africa: EFF Releases Classified Intelligence Report Into SARS 'Rogue' Unit Linked to Gordhan

A classified report purporting to have found that the South African Revenue Services (SARS) had a "rogue unit" was leaked to the media by the EFF on Monday evening.

The 2014 inspector-general of intelligence (IGI) report was sent by EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi to a WhatsApp media group. This followed an Equality Court ruling earlier on Monday that dismissed Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's application to strike the IGI report, which was attached as an annexure in the EFF's court papers responding to the hate speech charges that he had laid against the red beret leader Julius Malema and his deputy, Floyd Shivambu.

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.
