The brother of rising Australian football sensation Garang Kuol continues to taunt police months after skipping bail on fraud charges.
Kuol Mawien Kuol has appeared on social media with his other famous brother Alou Kuol during a fancy party aboard a yacht on Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
Kuol remains at large after failing to appear in court on July 22 in Victoria and is on his way to New South Wales to manage his younger brother, who almost became a Socceroo hero against Argentina at the World Cup on Sunday.

Kuol Mawien Kuol is still on the run after skipping bail on July 22. He is the brother/agent of football sensation Garang Kuol. The police have released this photo of him.

The 23-year-old fugitive helped broker a half-million dollar Premier League deal for Garang while on the run from Australian authorities.
Just days after making his international debut for the Socceroos, Garang secured a lucrative move to Newcastle United.
On Sunday, he almost equalized against Argentina in the desperate closing minutes of Australia’s lost World Cup final.
While Garang represented his country with pride around the world, Kuol sipped champagne while on a multi-million dollar super cruiser with Alou, who last year signed a 5-year contract with Germany’s VfB Stuttgart.
The couple featured on Alou’s Instagram page just a few days ago, showing them enjoying a nice sunset on the water.

Victoria Police confirmed on Monday that the warrant remained active on Kuol.
International football sources have told Daily Mail Australia that Garang’s brother was instrumental in negotiating his deal with Newcastle United with the help of a Nigerian agent who did the legwork for him in the UK.
Kuol is believed to have escaped the cold Melbourne winter for beachside Terrigal – about 86km north of Sydney.
Kuol had a warrant issued for his arrest in July after he skipped bail on charges of ripping off elderly Australians in an alleged $121,000 bank fraud.
The 23-year-old has effectively been on the run ever since, although his location has hardly been kept a secret.

Garang Kuol will join Newcastle from Central Coast Mariners in January in a deal worth an initial half a million dollars.
He was arrested in Sydney two days after escaping after disturbing behavior at the casino.
Police sources have confirmed the Footscray man, from Melbourne’s west, appeared in NSW’s Downing Center Local Court on July 28 where he was found guilty of four charges including resisting arrest and handling stolen property.
In a bungle, Kuol was released in NSW and has not been seen by authorities since.
Kuol has latched onto his talented younger brother, claiming to manage the “football affairs” of both Garang and Alou.
Considered one of the hottest young talents in Australia, Garang is being rewarded for his spectacular campaign with the Central Coast Mariners.
On Sunday, he played against legendary Argentine Lionel Messi.

Kuol had been released back into the community on $20,000 bail despite police objections.
He had appeared in Shepparton Magistrates’ Court in June after police charged him with eight bailable offenses and applied to revoke his bail.
The former bank employee had previously been accused in court of stealing more than $121,000 from National Australia Bank customers where he was employed in country Victoria.
The Shepparton News reported that the majority of customers affected by Kuol’s alleged thefts were elderly and included a 95-year-old and a 76-year-old.
Police gang crime squad investigator Senior Constable Daniel Chapman told the court Kuol was on bail on $20,000 bond when he allegedly got another man to turn himself in at the police station on seven occasions.
Kuol also allegedly tried to sell 13 grams of cocaine to an undercover police officer and used counterfeit notes to buy a PlayStation 5 from a Melbourne man who advertised online.
The alleged fraudster was also accused of using Alou’s driver’s license when he was stopped by police while he was unlicensed himself.

It is not suggested that Alou authorized any alleged use of Kuol’s license.
Alou set the nation on fire in June when he scored a stunning ‘scorpion goal’ for Australia’s under-23 side in the Asian Cup in Uzbekistan.
The police further claim that Kuol used another person’s credit card to buy return plane tickets to the United States.
Magistrate David Faram granted Kuol bail despite his horrific history of failing to obey court orders.
Faram also varied Kuol’s bail conditions from daily reporting to just three days a week – a requirement he quickly ignored.
While wanted by the police, Kuol continued to use his younger brother’s talents on social media, where he also digs into allegedly “false” reporting about Garang.
“Speculation, deadlines done. Only the family really knows the true answer,” Kuol gushed in a rant against media reports.
“Never refer to ‘third parties’, they have done nothing but support the work another is doing on the park and in life, manipulation is at its peak in this current era.
Anyone with information on Kuol’s whereabouts should contact the police or Crime Stoppers.
