Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok attributed the delay of the trial of figures from the regime of former Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir to the spread of coronavirus in the country.
In an interview with state television yesterday, Hamdok stressed that if this pandemic lasts for a longer time, it is necessary to think about carrying out these trials in larger courts.
According to the Sudanese News Agency (SUNA), he added: “The new government and I wish that these trials would have ended now.”
Al- Bashir was ousted in April 2019 following mass protests against his 30-year rule. He has also been indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague and is facing an arrest warrant over allegations of genocide in Sudan’s Darfur region.
