Sudan's Al-Bashir to appear in court soon -- Prosecutor

KHARTOUM, June 15 (KUNA) -- Sudan's ousted president Omar Al-Bashir will stand trial after one week on charges of corruption, Public Prosecutor Al-Walid Sayed Ahmad said on Saturday.
Speaking in a news conference, Ahmad said 41 corruption cases have also been opened against other former officials, adding that procedures of the detection and the arrest of these officials would begin next week.
Regarding remarks of the opposition on the killing of 113 people while ending the mass sit-in of protesters outside the defense ministry's HQ, Ahmad noted "we demanded not to open fire any way".
Meanwhile, Sudan's Transitional Military Council's spokesman Shams El-Din Kebashi announced on Thursday that the council decided to disperse the sit-in.
He pointed out that there was a meeting, which included military leaders, head of judges and public prosecutor to agree on removing the sit-in.
However, the judicial authority said in a press statement that it was part neither of taking decision, nor implementing, on dispersing of the sit-in. (end) mam.nbs.hm
