KHARTOUM – A Sudanese criminal court on Saturday convicted former President Omar al-Bashir of corruption, and possession of foreign currency and illicit wealth, sentencing him to two-year detention in a reform institution instead of in prison for exceeding age of 70.

“For arrangements relating to those who surpass the age of 70, and accordingly, I rule two years of detention for al-Bashir at an administrative reform institution,” said Al-Sadiq Abdelrahman, a court judge who delivered the verdict.

The judge also ordered confiscation of al-Bashir’s foreign currency money for his crime.
