The trial of former Sudan leader Omar Hasán al Bashir over the coup that brought him to power 31 years ago was postponed when his first session on the risk of coronavirus infection was due to the high number of people in the courtroom and nearby.
A large number of people have appeared before the Khartoum court, where Al Bashir appeared on Tuesday morning with a smiling face, a healthy look, and a Galabiya, the traditional robe of Sudan.
When the room in which the trial was to take place was filled with assistants without the removal measures required by the coronavirus pandemic, a judge announced that the trial would be postponed until August 11th.
Al Bashir is accused of undermining the constitution, breaking and rebelling the armed forces law. Al Moez Hadra, one of the lawyers who filed the complaint against the former dictator, told the DPA. 76-year-old Al Bashir is on trial among other defendants, including two of his vice presidents and several of his ministers and governors.
