Wayne Duvenage, the chairperson of the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa), chatted to Azania Mosaka to clear the air on The South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) default judgment.
One Stop Building Supplies has been embroiled in a battle with Sanral and the courts.
It is reported that the High Court in Pretoria, issued the first default judgment for the non-payment of e-tolls.
One Stop Building Supplies has been ordered to pay its outstanding e-toll debt of R436 407.
Duvenage says this default judgment against a company in liquidation does not delve into the merits of e-tolls.
Rather it is a judgment against someone who failed to provide a notice to defend themselves after receiving a summons for non-payment of e-tolls.
We made contact with the defendant concerned who claims that she never received the summons.— Wayne Duvenage, hairperson of The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa)
Outa has provided information on its website, about how the public and businesses should handle summonses and default judgments.
Members who have notified Outa of receipt of a summons will fall under the E-toll defence umbrella and the test case due to be heard.
