The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has decided not to prosecute suspended South African Revenue Services (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane.

This comes after a docket was opened by Moyane’s son’s girlfriend, accusing the suspended commissioner of assault.

According to reports, the 17-year-old, who is also alleged to be a mother to Moyane’s grandson said he allegedly kicked her “like a ninja” and “rugby tackling” her during an argument.

She also allegedly said during the assault, Moyane blamed her for his troubles and called her a witch.

NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane says the prosecutions authority decided against prosecuting Moyane because of insufficient evidence.

“We can confirm as the NPA that we declined to prosecute Mr Moyane due to the fact that the evidence we have in the docket will not lead to a successful prosecution,”Mjonondwane told the SABC.

“There were no prospects of a successful prosecution hence we declined to prosecute,” she added.
