KHARTOUM, May 5 (Xinhua) -- Anti-corruption and financial investigations prosecution in Sudan on Sunday questioned ousted President Omar al-Bashir on charges against him, Sudan's Ashorooq website reported.
Sudan's acting Attorney General Al-Waleed Sid-Ahmed Mahmoud on Thursday ordered the judiciary to question al-Bashir on charges of money laundering and financing terrorism.
Trying figures of the former regime is one of the demands by the Sudanese protesters who have been in a sit-in in front of the army's headquarters in Khartoum since April 6.
Sudan's Transitional Military Council (TMC), chaired by Lt. Gen. Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, is tasked with running the country's affairs following the downfall of former president al-Bashir's regime.
