Gordhan not presenting himself to the Hawks, "Let me do my job" he says

Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has set the record straight saying he will not present himself to the Hawks to answer questions related to the investigation into a unit set up at SARS while Gordhan was the organisation’s Commissioner.

Gordhan says he is not a suspect in the Hawks investigation.

I'm advised that I am under no legal obligation to present myself to the Hawks as directed in their letter. I have decided not to do so.

South African Communist Party (SACP) deputy secretary general, Solly Mapaila, says the investigation into Gordhan is part of political sabotage by people who want to control the National Treasury.

I want to say to comrade PG he has our full support. I think that's what is needed. These people must not tire us down. This is an unacceptable and disruptive conduct that is surely politically motivated.
