Former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has been denied bail by a court in capital Khartoum in a corruption trial that began after he was removed from power earlier this year.
Last week, speaking publicly for the first time since his removal, al-Bashir said he received $25m from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, but claimed he did not use the money for his own benefit.
Investigators said they found more than $130m when they raided al-Bashir’s house after the military removed him from power in April.
The charges against the 75-year-old former president carry maximum prison sentences of about 10 years. The next hearing is set for September 14.(AL JAZEERA)
