On Saturday, a court convicted former President Omar al-Bashir on charges of illicit possesion of foreign currency and corruption. He was sentenced to two years of detention in a reform facility.

Bashir was ousted in April following months of protests. His three decade rule culminated in this trial in which he was sent to a reform facility instead of a prison due to his age.

The judge also ordered the confiscation of millions of Euros and Sudanese pounds found in Bashir’s residence when he was toppled.

Bashir is also wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.
