Sudan’s ex-president convicted of corruption and money laundering

Omar al Bashir, the former president of Sudan, has been convicted of corruption and money laundering.

The 75-year-old has been sentenced to two years in a reform facility rather than a prison, on account of his age.

Al Bashir is also wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges of war crimes and genocide, linked to the bloody conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region, which began in 2003.
