The discovery of a large hoard of cash at ousted president Omar al-Bashir home has opened up another case of money laundering against him. Security forces raided his residence and seized €6m ($6.7m; £5.2m), $351,000 and five billion Sudanese pounds of more than $130m (£100m).
Police found cash hoard at al-Bashir residence.
Months after chaos and protests in Sudan, the army removed the former leader from the post and kept under house arrest. According to a source in Sudan’s judiciary, investigators will interrogate the former leader about money laundering in Kobar prison.
The bags, intended to place 50kg (110lbs) of grain, used to stuff money inside them. Sudan’s attorney general has reported that they have established a new committee to interrogate anti-corruption charges.
Mass protests still continued in the capital amid mistrust on army promise to handing over power to a civilian administration. Their suspicions are increasing day-by-day as no images have released of the former president in jail nor any announcement was made that the army will transfer power to civilian authority.
The Sudanese military removed Mr. Bashir from administration amid mass protests in the country. However, protesters vowed to continue the demonstration until the recent government moved to civilian rule. Mr. Bashir has governed Sudan for 30 years. International Criminal Court (ICC) also alleged him for war crimes in the Darfur region.
