Sudan’s ousted president Omar al-Bashir has been charged over the killings of protesters during the anti-regime demonstrations that led to the end of his rule, the prosecutor general announced Monday.
The office of Sudan’s acting prosecutor general said Omar al-Bashir and others have been charged for inciting and participating in the killing of demonstrators.
There has been no comment from Mr Bashir since he was removed from office on 11 April. At the beginning of May he was ordered to appear before a prosecutor for questioning over allegations of money laundering and terror financing.
Meanwhile, Sudan’s protest leaders said today that an agreement has been reached with the country’s military rulers on the makeup of a new “sovereign council” to run the country.
