April 17, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s ousted President Omer al-Bashir has been transferred to Kober prison in the capital Khartoum late on Tuesday.

His transfer to the prison ends rumours about his travel to outside the country.

Reuters, citing prison officials, said that he was being held in solitary confinement under tight guard.

The former president previously was held in his residence inside the army headquarters.

Sudanese military who have overthrown him last Thursday refuse to hand al-Bashir over to the International Criminal Court (ICC) indicating their preference for Sudanese court.

In line with the Rome Statute of the ICC, the courts at the national level should deal with cases of war crimes, genocide and crime against humanity. The ICC is complementary to those national jurisdictions.

After the coup d’état, the Sudanese military say they decided to topple al-Bashir on 11 April because he had ordered them to use violence to disperse thousands of protesters outside the army headquarters.

    Bashir can plan well for himself, calm down. He wants to rest after this long period since 1989.

    All gratitude to brave Sudanese people. Now for fist time in along time Sudanese entirely have choice how they want to live their life. In 1989 Cdr John Garang warned us of new strong Islamist military in power in Khartoum but jokingly said they know little about Sudanese.
