corruptionwatchBusinessLive reports that former Constitutional Court Justice Kate O’Regan herself had informed suspended SA Revenue Service (SARS) boss Tom Moyane’s legal team that she had been a member of the board of Corruption Watch for a long period of time.  

After President Cyril Ramaphosa rejected Moyane’s bid to have the state pay his legal costs and to amend the rules of engagement in the upcoming disciplinary inquiry, Moyane’s attorneys turned their attention to O’Regan.  They have demanded that she be removed as chairwoman of the inquiry because she is on the board of Corruption Watch.  The organisation had previously written to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) urging it to bring criminal charges against Moyane for his handling of the Financial Intelligence Report into his former second in command, Jonas Makwakwa.  While O’Regan, according to Corruption Watch insiders, is not involved in the running of the organisation, Moyane’s attorneys requested that she recuse herself.  The Presidency could not immediately be reached about how it would respond to the new challenge to the disciplinary process.
