Sudan's Bashir appears in court for corruption trial
Al-Bashir faces charges of corruption, possession of foreign currency, receiving gifts illegally

By Adel Abdul Rahim

KHARTOUM (AA) – Sudan's deposed President Omar al-Bashir appeared in court on Monday on charges of corruption.

The trial was held in the capital Khartoum amid tight security conditions.

The 75-year-old faces charges of corruption and possession of foreign currency and receiving gifts illegally.

Al-Bashir had been scheduled to appear in court last week, but the trial was postponed due to the signing of a power-sharing deal between the ruling Transitional Military Council (TMC) and opposition Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) alliance.

Al-Bashir was removed from power by the military in April after months of popular protests against his 30-year rule.

Ever since, he has been held in the Kober prison in Khartoum.
