The Equality Court on Monday ruled in favour of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in a matter on the legitimacy of the South African Revenue Service (Sars) “rogue unit” report.

Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan had brought an application to have the report by the Inspector-General of Intelligence expelled from court papers.

The papers were recorded by the EFF in the hate speech case brought by Gordhan after the party’s head Julius Malemacalled him a dog of white monopoly capital.

In a court sitting at the Johannesburg High Court, Judge Roland Sutherland rejected Gordhan’s application to have the “rogue unit” report prohibited from the EFF’s court papers.

The gathering’s Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said the decision was a significant achievement for responsibility.

“We welcome the opportunity given by this judgment for the IGI rogue unit report to be deliberated in the open public court,” the EFF said.

“The speech of the CIC outside the state capture commission was informed fully by the actions of Pravin Gordhan.”

He said it was important for this report to be admissible in court: “The actions of the Sars rogue unit had nothing to do with state security, crime intelligence or defence intelligence.”.

Ndlozi said this judgment was a triumph for responsibility against individuals who feel like they are exempt from the rules that everyone else follows.
