Sudan’s deposed military ruler Omar al-Bashir has admitted to receiving $90 million in cash from Saudi royals, an investigator told a Khartoum court on Monday. Police Brigadier Ahmed Ali said at the opening of Bashir’s corruption trial, which an AFP correspondent attended, that the former president told him that the latest payment was “delivered by some of Mohammed bin Salman’s envoys”. Bashir, whose military Islamist regime ruled Sudan for 30 years, arrived at the Judicial and Legal Science Institute where the trial is taking place in a huge military convoy.
