A branch of the Qatar National Bank is accused of collusion. The NAG says it provided the report privately to the President and Anti-Corruption Commission in late 2012, but saw no action.

2013/03/15 to 2013/08/01 On 15 and 23 March 2012, 'huge sums of money' are stolen from the Office of the President. After this fact is revealed by Sudan Tribune, President Kiir suspends three officials in the office and sets up a committee headed by SSACC Chairperson John Gatwec Lul. The report concludes the theft was done by a syndicate of office insiders, and notes a failure of office leaders to report the matter or tighten security afterwards. By 1st August it appears that at least two of the suspended officials have been reinstated. Snippet 1045
