Former president of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir is to go on trial soon, according to the country’s chief prosecutor.

Alwaleed Sayed Ahmed Mahmoud told journalists on Saturday that ousted President Omar al-Bashir would be sent for trial soon on corruption charges.

He is being accused of corrupt acts during tenure as President of Sudan for three decades.

There are very little details about the charges but officials say they are related to laws on “suspected illicit wealth and emergency orders.”

The trial referral is expected to begin after a one-week period, according to Mahmoud. He said room is being made for objections.

The chief prosecutor also revealed that criminal cases have been opened against 41 other former officials accused of graft.

Omar al-Bashir was interrogated by public prosecutors after being charged with money laundering and financing terrorism in May.

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.
