Judge Nugent: 'So-called rogue unit has nothing to do with us'

The commission of inquiry into the South African Revenue Service will not be looking into matters surrounding the High Risk Investigations Unit, or the 'rogue unit', as it became known.

Retired Judge Robert Nugent, who was appointed to head up the commission, told the media on Tuesday that he had received queries from the media over possible submissions made to the commission over the unit.

News24 sent this query.

"SARS is a very important institution. We are not going to bother ourselves with what six people in an organisation of 14 000 people were busy with," Nugent said.

He explained that the Commission was more concerned with determining how SARS dealt with administration at the time, and how it would do so in future.

"There have been some attempts to divert us down that road," Nugent said.

"I think the so-called 'rogue unit' has nothing to do with us."

The commission began its second round of public hearings on Tuesday.
