Corruption Watch on why it’s criminally charging Sars boss Tom Moyane

12 December 2016 6:23 PM
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews Corruption Watch Executive Director David Lewis.

Arguably the impunity enjoyed by politically well-connected people is the most serious impediment to effectively tackling corruption.

David Lewis, Corruption Watch

We are determined that these charges‚ on the face of it clear violations of our anti-corruption statutes‚ be investigated and prosecuted. If the Hawks and the National Prosecuting Authority fail in the performance of their duties‚ we will do in all our power to prosecute these ourselves.

David Lewis, Corruption Watch

Corruption Watch has laid criminal charges against South African Revenue Service (Sars) boss Tom Moyane on Monday.

The charges are for alleged corruption by two senior Sars employees.

We’ve heard nothing from the Hawks.

David Lewis, Corruption Watch

If they refuse to investigate; we’ll examine what our options are.

David Lewis, Corruption Watch

They’ve got to respond to a charge being laid.

Hlaudi Motsoeneng seems to be running out of options. But a year and a half ago he also seemed to be running out of options.
