Prosecutors have found a sum of $351million in ousted Sudanese President, Omar Al-Bashir’s residence.
Al-Bashir was transferred to the Kobar prison after he was toppled by the Sudanese military.
In a statement by Mutasim Mahmoud, senior public prosecutor in Sudan, he announced the seizure of $351 million, €6,7 million, and SDG 5 billion ($105 million) at the residence of Al-Bashir.
Mahmoud confirmed that the cash is secure within the vaults of the Bank of Sudan, and that charges will soon be filed against the former president under the foreign exchange and money laundering law.
Some of the cash recovered from Al-Bashir’s residence were packed in sacks designed for 50kg of maize meal, according to Dabanga, a media outlet based in the Netherlands.
Recall that ALEDEH reported protesters in Sudan have refused to accept the military’s transitional council, calling for a civilian council. The group of protesters, led by the Sudan Professional Association (SPA) has said it will unveil its own transitional council on Sunday.
Al-Bashir has been accused of committing human right crimes by the International Criminal Court (ICC).
He was ousted after over 3 decades of stiff, highhanded leadership in the East African nation.
