Rogues and hacks

New leaked emails shed light on SARS rogue unit and its allies.

Documents leaked to Noseweek reveal that when Skollie van Rensburg of the SA Revenue Service's so-called rogue unit gave testimony to the Sikhakhane panel, he was shaken at the extent of the panel's knowledge about the controversial unit.

Advocate Muzi Sikhakhane was appointed by SARS's then acting Commissioner Ivan Pillay in 2014 to investigate allegations of impropriety against Johann van Loggerenberg by his former lover, Pretoria attorney and SSA (State Security Agency) agent Belinda Walter.

I still find it fascinating that SARS created this unit and all they did was to investigate the illegal cigarette guys. But this also underlines the fact that SARS deems all taxpayers as crooks. And this while the real loss to the tax purse has not even be identified. What a solid joke. Boy am I going to enjoy my own research...

Editor's Note
A joke for some, a tragedy for others. And lots of secret wheeler-dealing in darkened, sound-proof rooms.
