Johann van Loggerenberg, who headed the elite crime-busting unit at the South African Revenue Service (SARS), reveals the truth behind the sensational reports that led to him and almost the entire top management being forced to resign in 2015. According to van Loggerenberg, there was no "rogue unit" and the investigations concerning this unit were fundamentally flawed.
"Impairing SARS's capacity by blunting its investigative edge has been tantamount to sabotage." Johann Kriegler, retired justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa
