Sars sends warning to criminals
Sars has vowed to combat any form of corruption, fraud, and abuse within the tax system.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Revenue Services (Sars) has vowed to combat any form of corruption, fraud, and abuse within the tax system.
Sars led a number of customs interventions in March, preventing 90 kilograms of narcotics valued at about R27 million from entering South Africa.
Other goods seized include cigarettes, medicine and steroids which had been smuggled into the country.
Three people have been arrested for fraud and abuse of the tax system.
Sars' Marika Muller says anyone found breaking the law will be put behind bars.
"We put a lot of time and effort into training our staff. Once you get caught carrying this stuff, you're not going to get away."
In February, North West police seized illegal counterfeit cigarettes worth over R1 million.
