Mr Lackay really does avoid the issue at hand - fraud and taxpayer's money - which has nothing to do with editors or circulation or his personal opinion in what is clearly a public matter.

Thanks to unscrupulous and apathetic statements like this from civil servants - whose salaries are paid by the taxpayers - I will NOT ever be returning to South Africa to live. I have paid a lifetime of tax only to see the highest levels of corruption and incompetence that the country has ever, ever seen.

Yes, only in SA and only in the past couple of years.......

I find the response from SARS despicable, and surely Mr. Lackay must have seniors that can put him in place. Come on Mr. Manuel deal with this guy.

So Mr Lackay is aware of noseweek's circulation. Interesting.
Makes me think the Society of Corrupt Bastards* have discussed it and are deciding collectively on "the way to treat this little publication".

Principles? The law? Your job? Citizens' rights?

All secondary issues.

We may have a rogue editor, Mr Lackay (though I'd use a different word), but you have powerful "friends" who have corrupted you into not doing the job you are paid to do. Shame on you.

"Don't bother us!!" says the *SCB collectively - "We're busy lying and stealing".

Yes it is amazing how demands made on SARS from taxpayers are treated as opposed to demands from SARS on taxpayers.

Yes Please Mr Lackey, we, the public are awaiting a response you corrupt bastard! And please go ahead and sue me, because I would love to drag the basis for my badmouthing you into the public arena.

Amazing response from the men who extort taxes from us. I always thought they were thieves, especially when I'm one second late with a VAT return.
