Ivan Pillay to contest 2nd suspension from Sars
The deputy Sars head was suspended again, one day after a Labour Court ruling ordered he be reinstated.
Pillay and another Sars official were suspended by commissioner Thomas Moyane and has been given until 12 January to argue why he should not be suspended.
His first suspension followed the appointment of a panel to investigate allegations of a special projects unit and its alleged illegal activities at Sars.
The Sunday Times reports that Pillay had to be suspended because of fears that he could tamper with evidence during an investigation into the allegations against him.
Meanwhile, Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene says he will take action on the situation within Sars by the end of January.
