Buyanga filed at the High Court in an attempt to have the court mediate his debacle with SARS. He says SARS has denied meeting his lawyers to discuss the seizure of Kruger Coins which he claims to be worth R600 million which people buy for a store of value.
“SARS unlawfully, without justification and without my permission and against my protests seized from me and dispossessed me of gold (Kruger) coins that I had with me at the time… Conservatively estimated, the gold coins that were stolen from my possession are valued at over 600 million Rand,” he wrote in his founding affidavit.
