The head of Sudanese Military Transaction Council (MTC) Abdel Fattah Burhan on Sunday confirmed that the country's deposed president Omar al-Bashir and the leading figures of his regime were all in prison.

Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.

"All the leading figures of the former regime, including al-Bashir and the commanders are all in prison and their property was confiscated," Burhan said in an interview with the Sudanese state television.

Burhan also said $350,000, €7 million and a few billions of Sudanese pounds were found in al-Bashir's house.

The commander pointed out that there is no political prisoner in the country and the senior figures in the security and intelligence service were made to retire after being investigated.

The MTC would question anyone who committed crimes before or during the recent demonstrations, he added.

With regard to the the political forces’ demand to transfer the power to a civilian government, he vowed to accelerate the “transition of power to the civilians.”

Burhan said: “We didn’t come with a coup, but with a popular revolution and we do not intend to stay in power."

Burhan said he prefers a technocrat government to be formed soon.

“Restructuring the state will take a long time due to the corruption problem within the state institutions,” he added.

The Sudanese military had deposed President Omar al-Bashir, who has ruled Sudan since 1989, following months of popular protests against his rule.

The military also established a military council to run the country for a transitional period of two years.
