Sudan’s expresident Bashir charged with illegal possession of foreign funds, corruption

A Sudanese court on Saturday charged ousted president Omar al-Bashir with corruption and use of foreign funds. His appeal for bail was denied.

Sudanese authorities seized Euros 6.9 million, $351,770 and 5.7 million Sudanese pounds at (Bashir’s) home which he acquired and used illegally, said judge Al-Sadiq Abdelrahman.

The funds were found when he was arrested in April.
