He was dressed in prison clothes … the trial of “Al-Bashir” in the 1989 coup case was postponed

-

Today (Tuesday) to September 22, a Sudanese court postponed the trial of ousted Sudanese President Omar al-Bashiru, 27 others accused of seizing power in the 1989 coup, to complete the procedures.

And the judge presiding over the court decided to move the upcoming trial sessions to the Friendship Hall in the center of the capital. To accommodate the attendees, and allow precautionary measures to be taken in light of the spread of the new Corona virus.

The session was attended by the defendants, headed by “Al-Bashir” in white prison clothes. If convicted, they will face penalties that could reach the death penalty, according to “France 24”.

The 28 defendants are being tried for organizing the coup that brought “Al-Bashir” to power in 1989, and in his military coup in 1989, Al-Bashir obtained the support of the National Islamic Front led by Hassan Al-Turabi, who died in 2016.
