Sars considers course of action against Agliotti
The North Gauteng High Court granted a final order by Sars to sequestrate Agliotti's estate.
JOHANNESBURG -The South African Revenue Service (Sars) says it's now considering what course of action to take against convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti in order to recover the over R70 million he owes in both income tax and value added tax.
Yesterday, the North Gauteng High Court granted a final order by Sars to sequestrate Agliotti's estate.
Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay says the organisation is glad the matter has finally been closed.
"It has been a really long legal process spanning many years and we're glad it has come to this conclusion."
Meanwhile, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema was also placed under provisional sequestration by the North Gauteng High Court yesterday.
Judge Bill Prinsloo found that Malema's debt to Sars renders him insolvent and even if all his assets were sold, he would still be unable to pay what is due.
Malema now has until May to provide reasons why this should not be made a final order.
