SARSEWN reports that suspended SA Revenue Services (Sars) Commissioner Tom Moyane intends to approach the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) to put a stop to either the Nugent Commission of Inquiry into governance at Sars or his disciplinary hearing.  

The disciplinary hearing is scheduled to start later this week when he will be facing misconduct charges related to a Financial Intelligence Centre report which implicated his former deputy, Jonas Makwakwa, in alleged unlawful conduct.  The commission meantime has heard testimony from several Sars officials who have blamed the crisis at the revenue service on Moyane’s decision to radically restructure the organisation.  Moyane tried and failed to stop both the Nugent inquiry and his disciplinary hearing by making submissions to the respective presiding officers.  His attorney, Eric Mabuza, confirmed that they are now approaching the ConCourt, but said he would only comment once they have filed their papers later on Monday.  It is understood that Moyane wants one of either of the processes stopped.  He has previously argued that his rights were being violated by having allegations and claims made against him at two concurrent forums.
