President Cyril Ramaphosa says he will begin the process to appoint a new South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner following a High Court ruling that Tom Moyane’s application for interim relief could not be granted because his application to the Constitutional Court was dismissed.
Judge Hans Fabricius dismissed the former Sars commissioner's application to have the president's decision to fire him reviewed and set aside.
Presidency spokesperson Khusela Diko says the appointment is an urgent matter which is receiving the president's attention.
