Four companies to challenge e-toll summonses
The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) is taking the issue of e-tolls to the High Court.
The organisation will represent four clients who’ve received summonses from Sanral to pay their e-toll bills.
They are challenging the summons, saying they're unconstitutional.
Eyewitness News (EWN) reporter Mia Lindeque says Outs is using this as a test case.

What they want to do is join four individual cases which are currently in the magistrates court, so that they don't only have companies but also individuals. That sample will then be tested , where they challenge the constitutionality of Sanral - the way that they summons, the way that they issue you with bills using the post office....Mia Lindeque, EWN reporter
Outa says that they hope to take it all the way to the Constitutional Court. Once there is an outcome, then there is some legal certainty on the matter and that will then translate to all of us.Mia Lindeque, EWN reporter
