Taxman goes after Agliotti
Sars has been granted an order placing Agliotti's estate under provisional sequestration.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Revenue Service (Sars) has confirmed that it has been granted an order placing convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti's estate under provisional sequestration.
The order, which is in the possession of Eyewitness News, was granted in the North Gauteng High Court on Monday.
According to the provisional sequestration order, Agliotti owes the taxman more than R60 million.
He has until February next year to prove to the court why a sequestration order should not be made final.
A statement from a Sars investigator is central to the application.
It confirms that Agliotti owes Groep Twee Beleggings, a company linked to Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir, R400,000.
This loan was first revealed two weeks ago when Sars slapped Krejcir with a preservation order.
Agliotti was the main suspect in mining magnate Brett Kebble's murder trial, but was cleared of all charges in November 2010.
