Suspended SARS commissioner, Tom Moyane will not face prosecution for the alleged assault of a 17 year-old girl.

The National Prosecuting Authority has confirmed that there are no prospects of a successful prosecution.

Moyane has been accused of tackling and kicking the mother of his grandchild in the face during a heated altercation at his home in Johannesburg.

NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwana says: “We can confirm as the NPA that we decline to prosecute Mr Moyane due to the fact that the evidence we have in the docket will not lead to a successful prosecution.”

“There were no prospects of a successful prosecution hence we declined to prosecute,” she adds.
