Former South African Revenue Service (Sars) Deputy Commissioner Ivan Pillay says he will challenge Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s ‘Rogue Unit’ report in court.

The Public Protector released a report on the so-called ‘Rogue Unit’ at Sars which implicated Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan and Pillay.

In an earlier report, Mkhwebane found that Gordhan, who was Sars Commissioner at the time, was unethical when he gave his deputy Pillay early retirement in 2010.

That report is currently pending judicial review.
