Johannesburg - The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has granted the SA Revenue Service (Sars) an application for two curators to take control of murdered strip club owner Lolly Jackson's estate, Sars said on Thursday.

"We went to the North Gauteng High Court, and we asked the court to appoint two curators to do inventory of more than 35 companies and entities associated with the deceased [Jackson]," Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay said.

"This was to preserve assets in the companies as well as the deceased's estate."

Lackey said the assets were preserved to help foot an outstanding tax bill of about R100m.

The court ordered on 26 April that Cloete Murray of Secheba Trust Limited and Zeenath Kajee of Westrust Limited be appointed to jointly act as curator bonis (legal guardians) of the assets.

Both were authorised to immediately take control of the assets.

Sars said in its affidavit that the aim of the applications was to "secure the collection of those taxes that are currently due as well as those taxes which Sars anticipate would be due by the respondents".

Jackson, the owner of the Teazers franchise of strip clubs, was shot dead at a house in Edleen near the OR Tambo International Airport on 3 May 2010.
