SARSEWN reports that President Cyril Ramaphosa has taken a hardline approach with suspended SA Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane.  

He has rejected a demand that the state should pay for Moyane’s legal bills in respect of his disciplinary proceedings.  Ramaphosa has also refuted a claim by Moyane that the inquiry against him was unfair.  The president suspended Moyane in March pending disciplinary proceedings headed by retired judge Kate O’Regan.  In a letter from the president’s legal team to Moyane, the president does not budge on any of the demands made by Moyane, making it clear that Moyane would face the inquiry without taxpayers footing the bill.  He also rejected the assertion that the process of conducting the inquiry without oral representation would be unfair, as claimed by Moyane.  Moyane faces various charges of misconduct.
