The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) has slammed the South African National Roads Agency Limited's (SANRAL) legal strategy to issue summonses to motorists who have failed to pay their e-tolls.
The civil action organisation, known for its opposition to e-tolls, says SANRAL employed attorneys with ‘virtual offices’ in contravention of Magistrates Court rules.
The organisation says that the correspondent attorney used by SANRAL in the Pretoria Magistrates Court summons is Bruce Henderson Attorneys and according to the summons, Henderson’s physical address, where notices have to be delivered is 3rd Floor, Building 2, Brooklyn Bridge Office Park, 570 Fehrsen Street, Pretoria.
It says Henderson does not practise from this address, as the office constitutes nothing other than a single desk with a receptionist in a Regus office, nor is the receptionist able to answer a single question regarding issues relating to the summons.
