Taxman after Agliotti's 'overseas stash'
Sars believes Glen Agliotti has large amounts of money stashed in offshore accounts.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Revenue Service (Sars) intends going after overseas bank accounts belonging to convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti, which it believes may contain enormous amounts of money.
The former Brett Kebble murder accused is the subject of a Sars sequestration application which is expected to be finalised in court unopposed in the next two weeks.
According to an application filed in October last year, Sars says it believes Agliotti could be holding funds in European bank accounts in Geneva and Guernsey.
It believes he is doing so to put the money beyond the reach of South African creditors.
Sars uncovered details of the Guernsey account when investigators found a cheque book in Agliotti's safety deposit box during a 2010 raid.
It believes Agliotti's lifestyle is that of an extremely wealthy man who travels extensively.
However, Agliotti says Sars has always known about his offshore accounts and says he is not stashing millions.
He says he wouldn't be sitting in South Africa if he were.
Meanwhile, Eyewitness News has learnt that Sars has also obtained judgments against the three self-confessed killers of Kebble and is rolling out sequestration applications against them.
