The Congress of the People has
raised its concern regarding the South African Revenue Services stating that it
is slowly losing its credibility.
SARS has been making headlines
for the past few weeks regarding officials receiving golden handshakes and
recently its former spokesperson Adrian Lackay is being sued for defamation.
COPE Spokesperson Dennis Bloem
said the spokesperson is being sued by Sars and the Commissioner Thomas Moyane,
apparently they are claiming that he has laid serious allegations against
Moyane and he have also published a confidential information
“We are calling upon Minster of
Finance Nhlanhla Nene to institute an independent inquiry for us to know the
truth. We must know what is happening at Sars.” Bloem added.
