The deposed president Omar al-Bashir of Sudan was sentenced to two years in prison on Saturday for corruption and money laundering of illegally obtained money.

 

Because of his age, 75, Bashir can serve his sentence in a re-education centre.

Bashir was deposed in April this year after the army seized power. The army command turned against Bashir after months of mass demonstrations against its reign.

Bashir ruled Sudan with an iron hand for thirty years.

He detained opponents and former allies, was responsible for the bloody action in the Darfur region and acted relentlessly against protests against his regime.

After his arrest, the authorities found tens of millions of cash in his residence.
