Nothing is a coincidence… We live in interesting times… We cannot simply ignore… that certain institutions have been captured…

Bernard Hotz, Werksmans

Certain state institutions have to be cleaned out… We have to get decent, honest people in there… Sars has been decimated… it’s imperative that it be restored…

Bernard Hotz, Werksmans

Three former South African Revenue Service (SARS) executives, who allegedly played a role in the so-called "rogue unit", have written to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for an opportunity to make representations and to have their summonses withdrawn.

Ivan Pillay, Johann van Loggerenberg and Andries Janse van Rensburg received summonses on Friday to appear in the Pretoria Regional Court on April 9 on charges of corruption and contravention of the RICA Act.
