ConCourtFin24 reports that axed SA Revenue Service (SARS) boss Tom Moyane has lost his bid at the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) for leave to appeal regarding his dismissal.  

Moyane's legal team filed the court papers for leave to appeal in December after the North Gauteng High Court on 11 December upheld his dismissal and ruled that a permanent SARS commissioner could be appointed in Moyane’s place.  In a brief court order, dated 4 February, the ConCourt stated that after considering Moyane's application for leave to appeal, it concluded that it should be dismissed as it "bears no reasonable prospect for success".  The court opted not to award costs.  The report of the Nugent Commission of Inquiry into the administration of SARS recommended that Moyane be sacked, among other things.  Moyane went to court several times to challenge the Nugent inquiry, its report and his dismissal, but without success.
