Corruption Watch on why it’s criminally charging Sars boss Tom Moyane

Arguably the impunity enjoyed by politically well-connected people is the most serious impediment to effectively tackling corruption.

David Lewis, Corruption Watch

We are determined that these charges‚ on the face of it clear violations of our anti-corruption statutes‚ be investigated and prosecuted. If the Hawks and the National Prosecuting Authority fail in the performance of their duties‚ we will do in all our power to prosecute these ourselves.

Corruption Watch has laid criminal charges against South African Revenue Service (Sars) boss Tom Moyane on Monday.

The charges are for alleged corruption by two senior Sars employees.
