Several bails of cash amounting to hundreds of millions have been recovered by Sudan’s anti-corruption officers at the former house of the recently impeached president, Omar al Bashir.
This has happened only two weeks since the former leader was removed from office through a military coup.
Announcing the discovery, a Senior prosecutor in the country, Mutasim Mahmoud, stated that a total of $351 million, €6,7 million, and SDG 5 billion was found when Omar’s residence was ransacked by the force.
Mustasim also explained that the money has since been kept in the vaults of Bank of Sudan and Omar will most likely be charged with money laundering for having such an amount of money in cash within his residence.
According to Reuters, the source that confirmed the discovery equally mentioned that the case was already under investigation and Omar will be questioned at the Kobar Prison.
The discovery expressly discredits Omar’s story of coming from humble beginnings and being brought up in an impoverished family at Hosh Bannaga where most houses were built with mud.
Meanwhile, the former president is currently being wanted for committing war crimes. But the leadership of Sudanese forces has insisted that Omar will not be extradited to any foreign country.
Equally, there has been continuous protests in Sudan, even after the Military takeover.
The Sudanese Professional Association (SPA) who forced the former president out of power with their persistent protests have begun to clamor for a civilian rule.
While the Military faction remains insistent on retaining power in the country, the SPA members have vowed to remain on the streets until their demands are met.
