Judgment has been reserved in Minister Pravin Gordhan's court application regarding the Public Protector's report about him.

Lawyers for Gordhan, former SARS deputy commissioner Ivan Pillay, the Public Protector, and the EFF, have concluded their arguments. Gordhan brought an urgent application to the High Court in Pretoria to have Busisiwe Mkhwebane's findings against him suspended until a judicial review has been completed.

The Public Protector found that Gordhan's establishment of a so-called 'rogue unit' at SARS during his tenure as Commissioner, violated the Constitution.
