Sudan’s new acting prosecutor has asked that all private properties belonging to officials of the previous regime be registered.

Sudan’s army ruler General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said on Sunday that more than 113 million US dollars worth of cash in three currencies has been seized from ousted leader Omar al-Bashir’s residence.

He said a team of police, army and security agents found seven million euros, $350,000 and five billion Sudanese pounds ($105 million) during a search at Bashir’s home.
