FOREIGN INVESTORS FUELLED VIOLENCE AND CORRUPTION IN SOUTH SUDAN

KYC 360 on 20th September said that a report from Sentry, an investigative arm of the non-profit group Enough Project, claims that ruling elites and warlords in South Sudan have been propped up by a complex and global web of corruption that includes would-be American arms dealers, British business tycoons, and Chinese oil giants.  The report says that local kleptocrats and their international partners — from Chinese-Malaysian oil giants and British tycoons to networks of traders from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya and Uganda — have accumulated billions of dollars.  The report profiles –

  • international actors who have provided direct support to South Sudanese perpetrators of violence;
  • international actors who have formed private businesses with top South Sudanese officials responsible for human rights abuses; and
  • international actors who have benefited from major public procurement scandals in South Sudan.

The report identifies 3 British citizens which it says could or should be made subject to action by the UK Government.
