Cyril says no! No joy for suspended Moyane over 'bias' and 'bills' demands

President Cyril has soundly rejected all of suspended Sars commissioner Tom Moyane's demands in respect of his pending disciplinary hearing.

Moyane's latest issue was around the potential for bias by the judge appointed to decide whether or not he should be dismissed.

Kate O'Regan is the judge and Moyane's reason is that she is a director of Corruption Watch who has previously made a statement against Sars and accused Moyane of being a fraud.

He was later suspended from Sars and served with disciplinary proceedings.
