He said the NPA and Sars committed to enhancing specialised and collaborative approaches to these matters, including the prosecutor-involved investigations model.
He said the complex nature of these crimes required holistic, well co-ordinated and sustainable responses involving a range of role players.
“Specialised NPA tax unit prosecutors and SARS criminal investigators will work together on investigations from an early stage, adopting a strategic case management approach. Collaboration between the NPA’s Asset Forfeiture Unit and the Investigating Directorate and Sars will also be enhanced.”
Earlier this month, the NPA and Eskom agreed to enhance existing collaboration to ensure the most effective co-ordinated responses to serious crimes, including those stemming from the state capture commission of inquiry.
The collaboration with Eskom includes increasing the sharing of information and high-level and operational co-ordination, while protecting the NPA's independence and mandate.
