Military intelligence discovered suitcases loaded with $130 million in cash.
Rabat – Sudanese military intelligence has found large sums of cash equivalent to $130 million at the home of Sudan former president, Omar al-Bashir, a judicial source in Sudan told Reuters.
After searching his home following his arrest and imprisonment, authorities discovered many suitcases filled with $351,000, €6 million, and 5 billion Sudanese pounds, the equivalent of $105 million.
It is believed that al-Bashir illegally collected the sums throughout his 30 years of authoritarian rule.
Sudan’s public prosecutor has opened an investigation into the money-seizure and suspicions of money laundering.
Al-Bashir has reportedly been detained at a high-security prison. Two of his brothers were also arrested for corruption charges.
