Ousted Sudan president to be sent for trial soon, prosecutor says

Sudan’s chief prosecutor said that ousted President Omar al-Bashir would be sent for trial soon on corruption charges related to his three decades in power.Alwaleed Sayed Ahmed Mahmoud told a news conference the trial referral would be made after a one-week period for objections expires, adding that criminal cases have been opened against 41 other former officials accused of graft.The prosecutor’s office said that Bashir, who was ousted by the military in April following months of protests against his 30-year autocratic rule, had been charged with corruption after an investigation was completed.The charges are related to laws on “suspected illicit wealth and emergency orders,” the office said, without giving more details.
