A Sudanese court yesterday resumed the trial of ousted Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir over the 1989 military coup which brought him to power, AFP reported.
Al-Bashir and 27 other defendants are accused of carrying out the military coup.
The trial was originally set to start on 11 August but was delayed at Al-Bashir's defence team's request as they sought bail for him along with two other defendants.
According to AFP, the request was rejected.
Al-Bashir's trial started on 21 July 2019 after a complaint was filed against him and his aides over charges of undermining the Constitution and carrying out the 1989 military coup.
On 30 June 1989, Al-Bashir headed a military coup against Prime Minister Al-Sadiq Al-Mahdi, he then became president of the country.
He was ousted from power last year after months of popular protests.
