This is believed to be in connection with the investigation into the so-called SARS rouge unit that was established under the leadership of Gordhan.

Markets reacted to the news immediately with the Rand plummeting with more than 3.5% following the news.

Meanwhile former SARS spokesperson, Adrian Lackay confirmed that he is not included in the group of former SARS officials, which include Minister Gordhan, ordered to report to the Hawks at 10 AM today.

But he has however confirmed to Jacaranda FM News that current SARS commissioner, Tom Moyane was the complainant in the matter.
