Shocking: $500m in cash found at home of deposed Sudanese president, Omar Hassan Ahmad Al-Bashir

on

Mutasim Mahmoud, senior public prosecutor in Sudan, announced the seizure of $351 million, €6,7 million, and SDG 5 billion ($105 million) at the residence of Al-Bashir.

Mahmoud confirmed that the cash is secure within the vaults of the Bank of Sudan, and that charges will be filed against the former president under the foreign exchange and money laundering law.

Part of the cash was packed in sacks designed for 50kg of maize meal.

Al-Bashir ruled Sudan for 30 years

Reuters quoted a source in Sudan’s judiciary as saying suitcases loaded with more than $351,000, €6m ($6.7m; £5.2m) and five billion Sudanese pounds ($105m) were found at Bashir’s home.

The agency said the source also confirmed that Bashir was under investigation and that prosecutors would “question the former president in Kobar prison”.
