The brief session, which was broadcast on Sudan TV, saw Bashir and other co-accused appear behind bars in the courtroom crowded with lawyers.

The trial of Sudan’s deposed strongman Omar al-Bashir over his role in the 1989 military coup that brought him to power was adjourned to September 22, the judge said Tuesday.

The brief session, which was broadcast on Sudan TV, saw Bashir and other co-accused appear behind bars in the courtroom crowded with lawyers.

The judge said Tuesday’s hearing was “procedural”, and that requests were being considered to change the courtroom as it was hard to adhere to coronavirus precautions in the packed setting.

“The next session will be next Tuesday, September 22,” the judge said.

The trial, which began on July 21, has been delayed several times already.

If convicted, Bashir and 27 other defendants — including former top ministers — could face the death penalty.

In December, Bashir was convicted of corruption and sentenced to two years in a correctional centre.
