Pretoria - Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has slammed auditing firm KPMG over a leaked report by the auditing firm that appears to confirm allegations regarding a rogue spy unit within the SA Revenue Services (Sars).

"It's allegations that have no foundation. They are based on a leaked document that even I haven't seen," he said.

"How would you like to be accused of something on the basis of a document that has not been put to you or... questions that have not been put to you, on the basis of no opportunity having been put to you to say what the facts of the matter are? One thing I would like to request from you is to stop reporting on rumours."
