A Sudanese court has convicted former president Omar al-Bashir on charges of corruption and illicit possession of foreign currency. He has been sentenced to two years of detention in a reform facility. The presiding judge has chosen to send the 75-year-old Bashir to a reform facility, rather than a prison, because of his age.

He also ordered the confiscation of millions of euros and Sudanese pounds found in his residence when he was toppled. Bashir’s problems don’t end there.
