Eyewitness News senior reporter Barry Bateman gives an update from the Nugent Commission of Inquiry.

The Nugent Commision of Inquiry is continuing to hear evidence of how the restructuring process initiated by suspended Sars commissioner Tom Moyane damaged the institution.

President Cyril Ramaphosa appointed retired Judge Robert Nugent to investigate tax administration and governance in Sars.

Speaking to Xolani Gwala, Eyewitness News senior reporter Barry Bateman says they heard the testimony from Sars business solution group executive Intikhab Shaik.
