Sars wants evidence of 'dossier' implicating Zuma's 'friends, associates'
Political editor Max du Preez is alleging that Sars head Tom Moyane was handed the dossier.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Revenue Service (Sars) has called for allegations of the service being in possession of a dossier, implicating alleged friends and associates of President Jacob Zuma in illegal activity, to be backed up with evidence.
Veteran political editor Max du Preez is alleging that Sars head Tom Moyane has been handed a dossier including information on businessman Robert Huang, who allegedly owes Sars R1,8 billion.
Du Preez made the allegation in a column published this week.
Sars spokesperson Luther Lebelo says he can't speculate about whether the allegations are true or attribute them to a perceived rift between Moyane and Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
"These allegations are serious. Imagine how much it will do to this country if Max du Preez was to come and provide evidence of these things that he is saying. All of us will be cleared."
