READ MORE: Sudan’s former President Omar al-Bashir appeared in public on Sunday for the first time since his ouster, as he was led away to a prosecutor’s office in a corruption probe.
The deposed strongman has been held under arrest in the capital, Khartoum, since the military removed him from power in April amid mass protests against his 30-year rule.
A judicial official with the prosecutor’s office said Bashir was being questioned over corruption accusations that include money laundering and the possession of large amounts of foreign currency without legal grounds.
