KPMG's forensic report into the Sars spy unit was issued with a disclaimer stating that it can't be used to settle any controversies or disputes.
Sars commissioner Tom Moyane asked KPMG to probe several allegations, including that the unit spied on taxpayers and operated front companies including a brothel.
Netwerk24's editor-in-chief Adriaan Basson on Monday said that the mandate and findings of KPMG report would raise several questions about political influence.
