South Africa Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan cannot meet a Monday deadline to respond to questions posed by a special police unit on his role in setting up a spy unit at the revenue service, his lawyers said in a letter sent to media on Sunday.
The Sunday Independent newspaper had reported that Gordhan had been given until Monday to respond to questions about the spy unit at the South African Revenue Service (SARS), which was set up when Gordhan headed SARS.
The letter, dated March 7 and distributed by the Treasury, said Gordhan could not meet the deadline because he was attending an investor road show in London and the United States.
