When a company deducts PAYE from an employee and does not pay it over to the SA Revenue Service, it and its directors are committing a criminal offence (“Return to sender, this business is blown”, November 24).

Why is it, then, that the CEOs of state-owned entities that are party to this behaviour (and, for that matter, the ANC, which similarly has not paid over PAYE) are not criminally charged?
