Moyane gives Ramaphosa an ultimatum to halt inquiry or face legal action

Nugent Commission of Inquiry into SARS
Moyane's legal team says it is unfair that he is facing two inquiries at the same time, asking the President to dissolve them.

Suspended Sars commissioner, Tom Moyane, has given President Cyril Ramaphosa until Friday to stop the inquiries against him or face legal action.

EWN political reporter, Qaanitah Hunter, says Moyane's legal team argued that it is unfair that he faces two inquiries at the same time.

They are saying that it was the President who initiated both inquiries - the Sars inquiry that's looking at the tax administration and governance, and the disciplinary inquiry, therefore it is his decision to dissolve them.

Hunter says Judge Robert Nugent who is heading the inquiry into Sars, rejected submissions by Moyane's legal team that both inquiry be stopped.

He gave them a schooling in law over those submissions they made. He rejected their demand that the inquiry be halted.

Nugent's point was that the inquiry was set up by an act by the President therefore it cannot dissolve itself.

Qaanitah Hunter, EWN political reporter

Hunter says Moyane's legal team wrote to the President on Monday asking him to dissolve the inquiries or at least one of them and also fire Prof Michael Katz, Sars advisor.

She says this is not the first time that Moyane threatened to take the President to court since the meeting at the President's house where Moyane was suspended.

It will be interesting to see whether they will go to court on urgent basis if the President doesn't respond.
