Freedom Under Law (FUL) says it will write to President Cyril Ramaphosa urging him to suspend prosecutions head Shaun Abrahams following renewed charges filed against three former SARS senior officials.
The three were served summons and charged with allegedly illegally spying on the scorpions a decade ago.
The FUL says it’s disappointed that even after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) was publicly humiliated when it was forced to abandon this case almost two years ago, it’s instituted charges again.
FUL’s Johann Kriegler, a former Constitutional Court judge, says as in the last NPA attempt to charge three former senior Sars officials, he doesn’t believe there is a reasonable case against them.
“The prosecuting authority disagreed with us and eventually had to retreat in disarray.”
