SARSFin24 reports that axed SA Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane will again turn to the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) and will appeal the North Gauteng High Court’s dismissal of his application to overturn his sacking.  

His lawyer, Eric Mabuza, said on Wednesday the matter had gone “way beyond” requesting leave to appeal the scathing ruling by Judge Hans Fabricius.  On Tuesday, Judge Fabricius ruled that “the conduct of (Moyane) in these proceedings is particularly reprehensible.  It is vexatious and abusive”.  Moyane’s application was dismissed with costs.  “Some of his [Judge Fabricius's] findings will have a chilling effect … it’s not just about Moyane, imagine if courts had taken the same attitude in cases involving [former president Jacob Zuma],” Mabuza said.  He pointed out that several cases against Zuma would never have gone ahead if the courts had had the same “attitude” to litigants.  He also claimed that the judge punished Moyane for challenging President Cyril Ramaphosa's decision to remove him and commented that it was unnecessary for the judge to have called Moyane “reprehensible and abominable”.  Moyane has been waging a marathon legal battle to have his dismissal overturned.
