JOHANNESBURG - South African Revenue Services (Sars) boss Thomas Moyane said Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene has been given a KPMG report into the so called Rogue Unit at the revenue service.

The secret unit was unlawfully established in 2007 to covertly gather intelligence and then later disbanded.

The controversy has led to high profile resignations

Democratic Alliance MP Alf Lees said Moyane refused to answers questions about the report's findings in Parliament yesterday.

"He refused to give us the cost of obtaining that report. The fee that KPMG would have been paid. We hear through the grapevine that cost was around R3 million, but we have no confirmation on that."

Lees said the minister must table the full, uncensored KPMG report in Parliament.
