Court Expose Former President Zuma

Court grants media houses access to Jacob Zuma's tax records.

The high court ruled that SARS must supply the financial mail and amaBhungane with Zuma's tax records for the years between 2010 and 2018 within 10 days.

The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Tuesday granted the Financial Mail and investigate journalism outfit amaBhungane access to tax records of former president Jacob Zuma.

The court ruled that the SA Revenue Services (SARS) must supply the two publications with Zuma's tax records for the years between 2010 and 2018 within 10 days.

TimesLIVE is a sister title of the Financial Mail, and both are published by Arena Africa.

In his ruling, Judge Norman Davis said section of the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000 (Paia) and the Tax administration act 38 of 2011, which delayed the applicants in accessing the records, were unconstitutional and invalid.

"Mr Zuma has not opposed the application, neither in general nor in respect of the relief aimed at disclosure of his personal tax affairs and has not delivered any affidavit addressing the aforesaid allegations made regarding himself and his tax compliance". Davis said.

amaBhungane and the Financial Mail filed the application to gain access to Zuma's tax records in November 2019.
