Jackson family to fight SARS court order
SARS was granted the right to assign curators to value Lolly Jackson’s assets.
JOHANNESBURG - Lolly Jackson's family said on Saturday they will fight the appointment of curators by South African Revenue Service (SARS) to start seizing the deceased strip king's assets.
The North Gauteng High Court last month granted SARS the right to assign curators to start valuing Jackson's assets because he owes more than R100million in taxes.
Jackson was murdered in 2010 in an apparent hit.
Claims to his estate have come from all sides, including Czech businessman, Radovan Krejcir.
In a statement released by the Teazers franchise, Jackson's family said they will be contesting the court order that allows SARS to seize their assets.
Teazers said the Jackson family is confident of a positive outcome.
In the statement, it was alleged that the Jacksons received no notice of the court application and had no opportunity to fight it.
SARS on Friday said the process of valuing assets is now at an advanced stage and it could be just a short while before Jackson's estate will go under the hammer.
