Omar al-Bashir, Sudan’s former president, has been sentenced to two years in house arrest for financial corruption.

Al-Sadiq Abdelrahman, judge of a Sudanese court, convicted al-Bashir on Saturday.

“The court decided to send him to a community reform centre for two years,” the judge said.

75-year-old al-Bashir is to be confined to a community reform centre owing to his age.

The judge said, “under the law, those who reached the age of 70 shall not serve jail terms”.

However, the former president will commence his sentence after judgement has been given in another case in which he is accused of ordering the killing of demonstrators during the protests that led to his ouster.

Al-Bashir ruled Sudan for almost 30 years.
