Magashula, Pillay request Abrahams review decision to charge them
Shaun Abrahams says he will consider all these representations after which he will pronounce his decision.
JOHANNESBURG - Eyewitness News has learnt that former Sars heads Oupa Magashula and Ivan Pillay today made representations to the national director of public prosecutions (NDPP) asking him to review the decision to charge them.
Their lawyers met with Shaun Abrahams today.
The NDPP has also invited Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to make representations by 5pm tomorrow.
According to the law, the NDPP can review the decision made by special director Torie Pretorius.
Gordhan issued a statement last week saying he would not be following this course of action as he has no faith in the NDPP.
He has also invited the head of the Hawks Berning Ntlemeza and current Sars commissioner Tom Moyane to make representations.
Abrahams says he will consider all these submissions after which he will pronounce his decision.
