5. (2012 December) Letters: South Africa Tax Law

Dear Sirs,

Laws must be rational, according to a recent Constitutional Court ruling in South Africa. Whilst this is trite it prompted SACPRIF to object to the income tax and vat Acts as the attached submission. Our recommendations were not accepted but we have now asked the President not to sign the Act into law on the grounds that it is unconstitutional.

Readers are encouraged to send other examples of irrationality, inequity and larceny. These will be used for future submissions to Parliament and will be part of the legal argument which is being prepared for the Constitutional Court challenge.

Kucinich’s HR 2990 dismantles the Federal Reserve System, ends “fractional reserve” banking, and provides for funding for infrastructure.
