SARSFin24 reports that fired SA Revenue Service (SARS) boss Tom Moyane was due to return to court on Tuesday in his latest legal battle to get his job back.  

His urgent application, to be heard in the North Gauteng Court in Pretoria, will see him argue that his dismissal by President Cyril Ramaphosa, which was based on the recommendations of the interim report of Nugent Commission of Inquiry, was unfair and unconstitutional.  Last month Moyane failed in his bid to have the Constitutional Court hear the matter after he had sought direct access to that court.  In the application, Moyane lists President Cyril Ramaphosa, Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan and Judge Robert Nugent, the head of the SARS inquiry, among the eight respondents.  Moyane was appointed by former president Jacob Zuma as head of the revenue service in September 2014 on a five-year contract.  Since his suspension by Ramaphosa in March, Moyane has waged a relentless fight to have the legal processes against him halted, including a disciplinary hearing headed by Advocate Azhar Bham which is currently on hold.  The High Court hearing is set down for two days.
