LEGAL BATTLES OFFICIALLY BEGIN FOR BASHIR
Prosecutor Officially Starts Probing Bashir Over Money Laundering And Terrorism Financing.
The official investigation into Sudan’s recently ousted president Omar al-Bashir has officially begun. According to a judicial source’s information to Reuters, the central North African country’s public prosecutor has ordered al-Bashir’s interrogation on suspicion of money laundering and financing terrorism.
The prosecution started investigating Bashir in April, over accusations of money laundering and possession of large sums of foreign currency without legal grounds. Large sums of money were found in suitcases in his home.
The former president, whose thirty-year-old rule came to an end after the Sudanese people protested demanding his resignation, is further wanted by the international criminal court on charges of crimes against humanity.
