$130m in cash found at the home of ousted Sudan president

Sudan's Al Bashir under spotlight after large sums of money found in home

Millions of Euros in Cash Found in House of Sudanese Ex-President – Report

Sudan's state news agency said the central bank strengthened the Sudanese pound to 45 pounds to the dollar from 47.5, in a measure that coincided with the sharp rise in the price of the pound against the dollar on the parallel market.

Reuters quoted a source in Sudan's judiciary as saying suitcases loaded with more than $351,000, €6m ($6.7m; £5.2m) and five billion Sudanese pounds ($105m) were found at Bashir's home.

Bashir has been under house arrest since protests pressured the military to remove him.

Reports say he is now being held at a prison in Kobar.

The money, which Radio Dabanga said was shown to reporters, was stuffed in bags created to contain 50kg of grain.

The protests quickly widened into demands for the removal of President Bashir, in charge for almost 30 years, and his government.

Sudanese authorities have arrested several top members of the former ruling party of ousted President Omar al-Bashir, in a move that could bolster military rulers who are under mounting pressure by protesters to hand power to civilians.

The general public prosecutor's announcement that Mr Bashir is being investigated for money laundering after cash was found at his home is news the demonstrators would like to hear.

The military council that replaced him, and who have faced continued protests demanding they hand power to civilians, said they will not hand Bashir over to the ICC.

Al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of genocide and war crimes, but the military, which announced a two-year rule after toppling his government, said he would not be extradited.

Meanwhile, thousands of protesters gathered outside the military headquarters in the capital, Khartoum, late on Sunday vowing to stay at the sit-in site until a civil government is installed.

Until this week, Mr Bashir's whereabouts since his removal were unknown.

The coup leader at the time, Awad Ibn Auf, said Mr Bashir was being detained in a "safe place".

The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which has been driving the protests, said in a statement on Thursday that civilian council members would be named at a news conference at 17:00 GMT on Sunday outside the army complex. Washington has said Sudan will not be removed from the list as long as the military is in power.
