ConCourtEWN reports that the attorney representing former SA Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane says they have noted the Constitutional Court’s (ConCourt’s) rejection of his application to appeal a judgement confirming his dismissal, but it was not the end of the road just yet.  

The former commissioner approached the apex court after the High Court in Pretoria ruled in December that his dismissal was both lawful and rational.  Attorney Eric Mabuza noted that the ConCourt dealt solely with Part A of their high court application and not Part B.  Part A was an interim order application which would have suspended President Cyril Ramaphosa’s decision to fire Moyane until a final order was granted.  Part B was for an order declaring the decision to fire him as unlawful and for the Nugent Commission of Inquiry’s findings to be set aside.  Mabuza said he would meet with his client later this week to take instruction and put in place plans to secure a court date soon.  Meanwhile, Ramaphosa’s office welcomed the ConCourt’s decision, saying it paved the way for a period of renewal at Sars.
