Malema previously admitted he had not attended to his tax affairs the way the law required.

According to court papers, Malema owed Sars R16m, plus interest, after failing to submit tax returns between 2006 and 2010.In 2010 Sars contacted Malema about his failure to submit tax returns.

It took Malema 18 months, after many attempts by Sars, to file his outstanding returns.

EFF leader Julius Malema's lawyers were expected to argue in court on Monday why a provisional sequestration order against him should not be made final, Sapa reported.

In May, Malema's provisional sequestration was extended and the matter was postponed.

According to Sunday's Rapport, the SA Revenue Service (Sars), would ask for a two-month extension of Malema's provisional sequestration to determine where he got the money to repay his tax debt each month.

According to "impeccable sources", alleged cigarette smuggler Andriano Mazzotti was helping Malema pay his tax debt, the newspaper reported.

Mazzotti was also being investigated by Sars for smuggling and tax evasion.
