JOHANNESBURG - The family of former Sars Deputy Commissioner Ivan Pillay says they are disappointed with the actions of the governing party.
Pillay’s wife, Evelyn Groenink, said on Thursday: "What is bad is the betrayal of the ideals of the ANC.”
“Gordhan is a good finance minister, somehow that is capitalist. That is such a betrayal of the ideals of the ANC," she said..
"Social justice, non-racialism - to see all that betrayed by people who are stealing, want all the money for themselves.”
Pillay, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and a third former Sars employee, Johann van Loggerenberg, were summoned to present themselves to the Hawks on Thursday to complete statements regarding their involvement in the establishment of the so-called rogue unit at Sars.
