June 16, 2015(BOR) – Unknown thugs broke into offices of the Food Security Program (JFSP) in South Sudan’s Jonglei state on Monday and stole $147,000, an official said.

Funded by the United States aid arm (USAID), JFSP is a livelihood project which was established in 2011. It is currently being implemented by Catholic Relief Service (CRS) in a consortium with Save the Children International in nine counties of Jonglei state.

David Deng Ajok, the director for Relief and Rehabilitation Commission (RRC), acknowledged the incident, saying theft has lately been rampant in the state capital, Bor.

“Last night, unknown gang went into CRS compound from behind the fence, they broke it, they went inside, and broke five offices, went to finance office, and looted $117, 000 and 90,000 pounds. They also took some laptops and cameras”, he said.

No arrests were made, but the matter is before the criminal investigation department.

In November 2013, the Catholic relief agency also lost several computers and cameras when their Jonglei office was raided in a similar manner by unknown people.
