A court in Sudan yesterday postponed the trial of ousted President Omar Al-Bashir in a case connected to the 1989 military coup that brought him to power. The trial has been postponed to 19 April.
In May 2019, the Sudanese prosecution opened an investigation into charges against Al-Bashir of undermining the country’s constitutional order over the coup.
Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir (born 1 January 1944) is a Sudanese former military officer, politician, and alleged war criminal who served as the seventh head of state of Sudan under various titles from 1989 until 2019, when he was deposed in a coup d’état.
He was subsequently incarcerated, tried and convicted on multiple corruption charges. In March 2009, Omar al-Bashir became the first sitting head of state to be indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC), for allegedly directing a campaign of mass killing, rape, and pillage against civilians in Darfur.
