Thanks Paul, Global Fund Observer just sent out a useful commentary on this issue, highlighting the alarmist nature of the original reports (less than 1% of the total budget is in question, though this is still serious), and that the Global Fund is alone amongst the larger health donors (PEPFAR, Gates etc) for having zero tolerance policies to fraud, and a transparent mechanisms to  monitor donations:
