Mubarak-era interior minister cleared of graft charges

Mubarak-era interior minister cleared of graft charges”

According to judicial sources, al-Adly, who served as interior minister from 1997 to 2011, is now set to be released - along with 10 others - after being acquitted by an appellate court. Meanwhile, his lawyer appealed the verdict and the top court accepted it and ordered the retrial of all the defendants.

The ex-interior minister already served a three-year prison term he was handed in 2013 for taking advantage of his position and using police conscripts to work for his property. It means that there was no regulatory body that could suggest or prove that something was either going wrong or right.

Egypt's Court of Cassation overturned on Thursday a seven-year prison sentence for former Minister of Interior minister, Habib al-Adly, who had been sentenced on charges of illicit gains, and ordered a retrial.

The sentences were later successfully appealed, however, and all 11 were exonerated with Wednesday's court ruling.

After the 2011 revolution broke out, the notorious former minister was immediately removed from office, got his assets frozen and was banned from traveling overseas. Since then, Adly has had a long-running streak in courts after facing multiple charges ranging from corruption to the deliberate murder of demonstrators.

After his conviction, he disappeared and Egypt's interior ministry declared him a fugitive.

In 2014, he was acquitted from charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during the January 25 Revolution in 2011.
