Sudan’s former president, Omar al-Bashir is to face interrogation from public prosecutors after being charged with money laundering and financing terrorism.
He was overthrown in a coup by the military in April and has seen been moved to a maximum security prison.
But he is facing prosecution after military intelligence searched his home and found suitcases with more than $351,000.
Currency worth six million euros and five million Sudanese pounds were also found, according to the judicial sources.
On Thursday an order was given for him to be interrogated on the alleged crime. Mr. Bashir’s 30 year rule came to an end after series of protests from Sudanese who wanted him gone.
The protests were over worsening economic conditions at first but soon threatened Bashir’s regime.
He refused to give up power, leading to a coup. The Sudanese people however want the entire military regime gone and continue to push for a civilian transition council.
Meanwhile the military has been given 60 days by the African Union to handover power to a civilian regime.
A top official in Sudan’s military council is reported by the BBC to have said that civilians will not be allowed a majority stake on the supreme council.
The supreme council is set to rule the country during a transitional period.
Protesters continuing to camp outside the military headquarters to demand the complete overhaul of the regime.
