Judge Robert Nugent has rejected Tom Moyane's request for the Sars Inquiry to be postponed until his disciplinary hearing wraps up.
Nugent had some harsh words for Advocate Dali Mpofu, Moyane’s legal representative, calling his submission “a disgrace”.
Nugent rejected Moyane’s claim that professor Michael Katz is conflicted, calling the assertion “disingenuous”.
In the end Judge Nugent did not find a single ruling Moyane sought to be “competent in law”.
