Sudan’s ousted former President Omar al-Bashir has been summoned by prosecutors over the 1989 coup that brought him to power
His legal team which made this known, did not attend the summons that lasted an hour amid chants from protesters outside the prosecutor’s office.
The deposed president who is currently being held at Kober prison in Khartoum, attended against his legal team’s advice.
In November, Sudanese authorities filed charges against Mr Bashir and some of his aides for “plotting” the 1989 coup and a special committee for the case was formed.
If found guilty, he could face the death penalty or life imprisonment under Sudanese law.
The Former President is facing two other charges.
In May he was charged with incitement and involvement in the killing of protesters.
A verdict for another case where he was charged with possessing illicit foreign currency and corruption is expected on Saturday.
