September 22 - 2019 KHARTOUM

The former head revenue official in Sudan’s Presidential Palace and his son have been arrested, and charged with corruption after $1 million in cash was found in the son’s possession.

The Zero Corruption Organisation says that Sudan's Prosecution of Illicit Acquisition and Suspect Wealth found one million American Dollars in the possession of the son of Ahmed El Fashashoya.

The Prosecutor of the Illicit acquisition and Suspect Wealth raided the houses of the defendants, where they found the amount.

The son was arrested immediately, while El Fashashoya was arrested on Wednesday, after “considerable effort” by the Illicit and Suspected Wealth Prosecutor.
