Lawyers representing suspended South African Revenue Service Commissioner Tom Moyane have requested that the SARS inquiry be suspended-  or have a stay in proceedings until Moyane’s disciplinary inquiry is concluded.

The Commission is probing Tax Administration and governance issues at the Revenue Services.

Several former executives who have testified before the commission have accused Moyane of instilling a culture of fear when he took over the reins in September 2014.

Advocate Dali Mpofu, who is representing Moyane, says the choice of witnesses shows that the Commission has already prejudged the proceedings to favour a particular outcome.
