Sudan's Bashir appears in public for first time since being ousted

He added that the investigation launched against Bashir for the charges had been completed.

But army generals have resisted protesters' demands to hand power to a civilian administration.

Sudan suffered high rates of corruption during his rule, ranking 172 out of 180 countries in Transparency International's 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index.

Prosecutors say a large hoard of foreign currency was found in grain sacks at Mr Bashir's home after he was ousted, bringing to an end almost 30 years in power.

He said a team of police, army and security agents found seven million euros ($7.8 million), $350,000 and five billion Sudanese pounds ($105 million).

Al-Bashir, who has not been seen in public since his arrest in April, had already been charged last month with incitement and involvement in the killing of protesters.

Protests against Bashir's rule initially erupted on December 19 after his then government tripled the price of bread.

Ahmed also said on Saturday that 41 other charges against "symbols of the ousted regime" were under investigation.

Dagalo is the commander of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, which the protesters accused of spearheading the crackdown.

WATCH Tyson Fury Perform Aerosmith Song After Destroying Tom Schwarz
Who should be next for the "Gypsy King"? Fury switched to southpaw in Round 2 and really began to sit down on his punches. Tyson Fury barely broke a sweat in the desert as he dominated the German underdog, and produced the stoppage in style.

Shams, a Sudanese protester, told Al Jazeera the move against al-Bashir was aimed at "distracting" from the generals' recent bloody crackdown on a protest camp outside the military headquarters in the country's capital, Khartoum.

The protesters ended their strike amid mediation efforts by the Ethiopian leader, who declared earlier this week that talks would be resumed "soon".

He also said the dispersal of the protesters was not discussed at the meeting he attended on dealing with criminals near the protest site.

More than 100 people were killed that day in Khartoum, according to doctors linked to the protest movement, while the health ministry put the nationwide death toll at 61.

Nagy said the head of the military council, Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, "was adamant that there will be accountability" and that "we certainly hope that there will be such an investigation".

"We are working hard to take those who did this to the gallows", Hemeti said in a televised speech, according to the AFP news agency.

"The committee's findings so far show that officers and soldiers of different ranks from regular forces entered the sit-in without any orders from their superiors", Brigadier Abderrahim Badreddine, spokesman for the committee, told state television.

On Friday after a visit to Khartoum, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for Africa, Tibor Nagy, called for a credible and independent investigation into the killings.

"They were not part of the troops who were ordered to clean Colombia", he said.
