The coup was apparently done by the local "establishment". I would be surprised if he would ever be extradicted and stand in front of an internatinal tribunal as Milosevic. IMO more likely will stay in house arrest/prison in Sudan until he dies or they will let him go to exile in a Gulf country (KSA?).

KSA or the gulf do seem to be favoured spots for ex-dictators with a national treasury to spend!

The civilian population are wanting free elections. The army was to rule for another 2 years. The original general in charge had his job for one day and South Sudan is in a perilous state. What could possibly go wrong?

Cash hoard found at Sudan ex-ruler's home

A large hoard of cash has been found at the home of Sudan's ousted president Omar al-Bashir and he is now being investigated for money laundering, prosecutors say.

Security services found euros, dollars and Sudanese pounds totalling more than $130m (£100m).

The ex-leader was placed under house arrest after months of protests led to his removal.

Reports say Mr Bashir is now being held at the Kobar high-security prison.

A source in Sudan's judiciary told Reuters news agency that suitcases loaded with more than $351,000, €6m ($6.7m; £5.2m) and five billion Sudanese pounds ($105m) were found at Mr Bashir's home.

The source also confirmed Mr Bashir was under investigation, telling Reuters prosecutors would "question the former president in Kobar prison".

He had the right idea there, you just need to follow his example, I'm still waiting to house your suitcase of surplus cash.

Democracy is the last thing a country like Sudan needs. What is needed is another authoritarian ruler such as al-Sisi who can keep the Islamists in line.
