SARSFin24 reports that Public Enterprise Minister Pravin Gordhan has laid out the state's case against suspended SA Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane in a 69-page affidavit.  

Moyane was suspended from the agency on 19 March.  President Cyril Ramaphosa at the time accused him of overseeing a "deterioration in public confidence in the institution" and letting public finances become compromised under his watch.  The affidavit, submitted to Advocate Azhar Bham, presiding officer of Moyane's disciplinary hearing, gives the details substantiating four charges made against Moyane.  The charges are: gross mishandling of the Finance Intelligence Centre (FIC) report flagging "suspicious and unusual cash deposits and payments" made into the accounts of two SARS employees; unauthorised bonus payments; misleading Parliament; and instructing a SARS employee not to co-operate with the KPMG investigation into the SARS High Risk Unit.  Moyane's lawyer Eric Mabuza said on Thursday that they were considering the affidavit.
