Corruption Watch has written again to the Hawks in the matter of their investigation into employees of the South African Revenue Service (Sars), namely Sars head Tom Moyane as well as Jonas Makwakwa and Kelly-Ann Elskie, all in respect of contraventions of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, the Financial Intelligence Centre Act, and the Prevention of Organised Crimes Act.
The letter, addressed to Hawks head Lieutenant-General Berning Ntlemeza as well as other senior personnel, was sent on 30 January. It follows up on a letter sent by us to the Hawks on 31 October 2015, to which we have received no response – despite assurances that we would receive one.
We have again asked for a response – by Friday 3 February – to our original request, and to be kept informed of progress as the investigation proceeds. If no such information is forthcoming, we will pursue remedies available to complainants in terms of the SAPS Act.
