A Sudanese court convicted ousted president Omar al-Bashir of corruption on Saturday and sentenced him to two years in a community reform centre.
Millions of US dollars, euros and Sudanese pounds were seized in al-Bashir's home shortly after the military removed him from power.
In May, Sudan's attorney general said Bashir had been charged with the deaths of those killed during the anti-regime demonstrations that led to his ouster, without specifying when he would face trial.
Bashir's prosecution is a test of how fast and how far military and civilian authorities now sharing power in Sudan will act to overturn his legacy.
That's the first verdict in a series of legal proceedings against al-Bashir, who is also wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes and genocide linked to the Darfur conflict in the 2000s.
Wearing the traditional Sudanese white jalabiya garment and turban, Mr.al-Bashir stepped into a packed court in central Khartoum and was corralled in a meshed metal defendant's cage. Babakr had been under house arrest in Khartoum since al-Bashir's overthrow. "The sums of foreign and national currency that were seized are confiscated", Abdelrahman said.
The verdict comes a year after Sudanese protesters erupted in revolt against al-Bashir's authoritarian rule.

Sleeping Too Much Might Raise Stroke Risk
Interestingly, even those reporting nightly sleep duration of less than seven hours did not display higher incidence of stroke. On average, people were followed for six years and asked about their sleep and napping habits through questionnaires.
Bashir's lawyer Mohamed al-Hassan had said before the verdict that the ex-president's defence did not see the trial as a legal case, but as "a political" one.
Several other judicial cases have been launched in Sudan against the former president.
It said it has teams working on a list of charges they want Bashir to face, including for crimes against humanity in Darfur, the 1989 coup that brought him to power and the torture and killing of prisoners. During that time, Sudan landed on the USA list for sponsoring terrorism, and the economy has been battered by years of mismanagement and American sanctions.
But Sudan's umbrella protest movement, which now has significant representation on a sovereign council that in August became the country's highest executive authority - recently said it has no objection to his extradition.
He also announced that a committee was being formed to dissolve the assets of Bashir's National Congress Party.
Almost four months later, a group of military generals removed Bashir from power and jailed him in Khartoum's Kobar prison where he had incarcerated thousands of opponents of his repressive rule.
