Gordhan made the comment earlier this week in his reply to a parliamentary question by DA finance spokesman David Maynier.
SARS informed Gordhan for the purpose of his reply to Maynier that it did not have a specialised investigating unit similar to the covert “rogue” unit which has caused such a controversy over the past year.
