EWN senior reporter Barry Bateman says the former public enterprises minister argues that the matter is politically motivated.

Former Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan has approached the court to set aside the Public Protector's report.

Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane released her report on Friday which she found that in 2010 while being the minister of finance, Gordhan violated the Constitution by approving former South African Revenue Service deputy commissioner Ivan Pillay’s early retirement with full pension benefits.

Eyewitness News senior reporter Barry Bateman says in an affidavit Gordhan says the timing of the release of the report was politically motivated and part of an effort to empower proponents of state capture.

He is not sparing any punches on this matter. He is gone straight after her and said that the matter was politically motivated.
