Zimra Sues Gershem Pasi for $218 000 for fraud, abuse of office

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) is demanding $217 624 from its former commissioner-general, Gershem Pasi, accusing him of abuse of office and fraud.

In court papers Zimra says a forensic audit carried out on the operations of the parastatal during the period from July to September 2016 revealed that Pasi enriched himself “through fraud and/or fraudulent misrepresentations, and/or abuse of his office and/or in breach of his contract of employment”. Zimra says Pasi defrauded the parastatal in 2014 when he travelled to the United States on business and was allowed by the Ministry of Finance an approved accommodation rate of $279 per night instead of $210 per night in terms of Zimra’s guiding policy.

Zimra also states that between July 1, 2014 to June 2015, Pasi swindled his former employer when Zimra continued to pay for fuelling, servicing and insurance in the sum of $8 509 for his Toyota Hilux and Corolla after he had purchased the said vehicles from the parastatal. Zimra said on February 5, 2015 Pasi allegedly claimed and received a refund of airport transfer costs, the equivalent of $2 080, for a holiday to Seychelles during the period January 20-23, 2015 when in fact the amount had already been catered for by the spending money provided for under his contract of employment.
