Ousted Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir’s trial has been postponed to Aug. 31, according to an official statement.

The Sudanese army ousted al-Bashir on April 11 amid popular protests that erupted in December last year.

Following his ouster, the General Prosecution in Sudan raised charges against al-Bashir related to corruption and possession of illicit wealth after around 113 million U.S. dollars were found at his residence.
