S. African lawmaker Malema dodges tax axe – for now

South Africa's Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema greets supporters during the party's final electoral campaign rally in Atteridgeville (Pretoria) on May 4, 2014A last-minute deal temporarily saved South African political firebrand Julius Malema from losing his parliamentary seat for failing to pay nearly $2 million in taxes, a lawyer said Monday. Malema, who leads the radical Economic Freedom Fighters party, had faced sequestration after a court declared him provisionally insolvent in February. Malema said the country’s revenue authorities accepted his compromise proposal to pay back outstanding tax. “The offer to compromise took into account the existing outstanding tax of 18 million rand ($1.7 million, 1.3 million euro at current rates),” Malema, 33, said in a statement.
