Corruption Watch: Thorough probe to deal with Sars officials


JOHANNESBURG - Corruption Watch says a thorough investigation into South African Revenue Service (Sars) head Tom Moyane and two other employees will allow the matter to be settled once and for all.

The organisation laid criminal charges against the trio due to Moyane’s apparent failure to take action against his deputy Jonas Makwakwa and Kelly-Ann Elksie after alleged suspicious transactions into their bank accounts.

The payments are said to have been made over the last six years.

The allegations were contained in a Financial Intelligence Centre report, which is believed to have been sent to Moyane who did not act on the claims.

Makwakwa and Elksie have since been suspended by Sars.

Corruption Watch's David Lewis says: “It also appears he is in contravention of the Financial Intelligence Centre Act on prohibiting the sharing of the report on any person who is the subject of their conclusions regarding suspicious transactions.”
