BBC: The trial of Sudan’s former President Omar al-Bashir for his role in the coup that brought him to power in 1989 has resumed in the capital, Khartoum.
Along with several military personnel and civilians, Bashir is accused of plotting the coup that saw him stay in power for almost 30 years.
A judge rejected his plea to drop the case because so much time had elapsed.
Last year, the former Sudanese leader was given a two- year sentence after being convicted of money laundering and corruption.
He was overthrown in a coup in April 2019 following mass protests against his rule.
Bashir has also been indicted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide. He denies the charges.
