Hollywood star George Clooney’s investigative project The Sentry on Thursday urged the international community to act over alleged links between global corporations, tycoons and foreign governments and rampant corruption in South Sudan. The Sentry—co-founded by Clooney and former US official John Prendergast—accused individuals and corporations worldwide of profiting from South Sudanese politicians and military officials “ravaging the world’s newest nation”. In a 64-page report, the organisation called on the United States to expand its sanctions regime to target those involved and asked Britain and the European Union to impose sanctions on human rights violators and their networks.—Reuters
