The Central Bank of Sudan (CBoS) has frozen bank accounts of 40 prominent officials of the former regime including Nafi Ali Nafi and Abbas Al Bashir, the brother of the deposed former president.

The frozen accounts including companies and business names associated with prominent officials of the former regime, against whom reports of irregularities have been filed regarding land and real estate.

The CBoS has issued a circular to all banks and ATMs to freeze these accounts on the grounds of alleged violations concerning money laundry and corruption.

The CBoS formally informed the Land Violation Prosecution stating that the personal accounts, companies, and business names of the suspected people were frozen in accordance with the prosecutor's decision regarding the freezing of assets related to the officials of the former regime.

The sources revealed that Al Bashir's brother Abbas owned 22 companies that were frozen according to the bank's decision.
