Khartoum [Sudan], March 15 (ANI/Sputnik): A military court in Sudan sentenced former chief of staff Hashim Abdel Muttalib to nine years in jail on Monday for his role in a 2019 coup attempt, a source familiar with the ruling told Sputnik.
"A special tribunal sentenced the chief of staff of the Sudanese armed forces, Hashim Abdel Muttalib, to nine years in prison. He was retired after having his military rank downgraded," the source said.
Three colonels and two other officers were each given a five-year prison sentence, while three soldiers of the Sudanese armored corps were acquitted.
The judgment needs the approval of Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, the country's top general, who dissolved the transitional government in October more than two years after the toppling of Sudan's longtime ruler Omar Bashir. (ANI/Sputnik)
