'Sars executives were not told why modernisation was stopped by Moyane'
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.
In December 2014, three months after Tom Moyane arrived he put a moratorium on the modernisation process.Barry Bateman, EWN senior reporter
What we heard from Shaik is that they weren't told why this was stopped or what the problem was.Barry Bateman, EWN senior reporter
What we also heard is that while the changes were happening, the IT infrastructure was not changed accordingly and this introduced various bottlenecks into the process.Barry Bateman, EWN senior reporter
