It has emerged that SARS spend R3 million on a bogus investigation against a SARS senior manager.

Senior Manager for Fraud Investigation at SARS, Yousuf Denath, says he was suspended for 15 months over false charges that were found on twitter.

Denath says he was suspended after being accused of colluding with British American Tobacco in undermining other players in the sector.

Denath further claims that was previously investigated for the same issue and was found to be innocent. His department used to investigate the illicit tobacco industry.
