Zondo Commission denies Moyane permission to cross-examine Gordhan
Former South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane has been denied permission to cross-examine Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan at the state capture commission.
Deputy Justice Raymond Zondo said Moyane's application did not comply with the rules of the commission.
Eyewitness News senior reporter Barry Bateman says Zondo explained that an implicated party needs to identify which part of a witness statement they deny or dispute when applying to cross-examine.

Nor did he argue why it is necessary for him to be allowed to cross-examine and why it is in the interest of the commission to allow the cross-examination.Barry Bateman, Senior reporter - Eyewitness News
