Garang Kuol's Brother Skips Bail and Taunts Authorities
While Garang Kuol is representing Australia in the World Cup, his brother Kuol Mawien Kuol continues to taunt authorities after skipping bail for fraud charges.
Back in July, the player’s brother got charged with ripping off elderly Australians in an alleged $121,000 bank scam. He was supposed to go on trial on July 22 but was a no-show. As of Monday, it’s been confirmed by Victoria Police that the arrest warrant for Kuol is still active.
Apparently while on the run from Australian authorities, the 23-year-old fugitive was involved in brokering a half-a-million-dollar Premier League deal for Garang with the help of a Nigerian agent doing the leg work for him in the United Kingdom.
Garang almost equalized against Argentina in the desperate final minutes of Australia's losing knockout round game.
Kuol Mawien Kuol, on the other hand, has been charged with more crimes. They include resisting arrest and handling stolen goods. Though still on the run from authorities, the fugitive has been active on social media while promoting his brothers.
A recent social media post has shown him with his other famous brother Alou Kuol during a fancy party aboard a yacht on Sydney's Darling Harbour.
It’s been advised that any sightings or information on the man be shared with police or Crime Stoppers.
