Tom Monyane denies opening criminal case against Pravin Gordhan

Eyewitness News has revealed that South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane has been accused of lying under oath for saying in court papers that he did not open the criminal case against former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.

EWN Senior reporter Barry Bateman says the allegations were made in an affidavit by Sars official, Vlok Symington, who has approached the High Court to stop disciplinary proceedings against him.

Bateman adds that Symington says he's being targeted because of the protected disclosures he has made to watchdog Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

Tom Monyane has filed in his responding affidavit where he states he wants to specifically confirm that he did not lodge any criminal complaint against former finance minister as alleged by the applicant.
