12. Addressing Corruption


The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development is allocated R1.8 billion to improve business processes. This allocation will support our brave law enforcement agents in the fight against crime and corruption.


We are bringing the long arm of the law into the digital age through the Justice Modernisation Programme.


SARS, SARB and the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) are working jointly on combating criminal and illicit cross‐border activities through an interagency working group. This group has completed 117 investigations, and found R2.7 billion for our fiscus. Customs and excise operations are reducing the illicit movement of goods across borders, assisted by specialised cargo scanners, resulting in 3 393 seizures valued at R1.5 billion for the fiscal year to January 2021.
