Sitting South African Finance Minister, Pravin Gordhan, to be prosecuted for fraud

According to reports, the minister is being prosecuted over alleged misconduct when he was previously chief of the South African Revenue Service (SARS) tax collection department.

Reports claim that he illegally authorised an early retirement package for a senior colleague at SARS, which Gordhan headed between 1999 and 2009.
The country's head of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Shaun Abrahams, has vowed not to give him preferential treatment.....

"Gordhan and two others "must be prosecuted and arraigned on the following crimes: count one, fraud. The days of non-accountability and not holding senior government officials accountable are over."
