Suspended Sars Commissioner Tom Moyane and Sars have dropped a three-year-long civil action with former spokesperson at Sars Adrian Lackay.
Back in 2015, Moyane slapped Lackay with a R12 million civil suit after he claimed Moyane was on a sustained campaign to destabilise Sars.
Lackey says he is relieved now that Moyane has dropped the lawsuit because it was hard on him and his family.
At some point, there must be some restitution and there must be some kind of justice for the taxpayers of this country.— Adrian Lackay, Former Sars spokesperson
Billions of rands were stolen and I think we will see a lot of evidence before the Zondo Commission that will emerge.— Adrian Lackay, Former Sars spokesperson
We still have a lot of work to do to fix the damage that occurred over a five year period.— Adrian Lackay, Former Sars spokesperson
Lackay says he received a lot of support from his family who were there for him from the beginning as well as his former Sars colleagues, including former Sars commissioner Pravin Gordhan.
Lackay is currently the spokesperson at the Department of Public Enterprise working closely with Minister Gordhan.
Moyane and Sars will also pay for all legal costs involved in this matter.
