Mubarak's interior minister sentenced to 12 years in jail

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-05-05

Egypt’s former interior minister Habib al-Adly has been sentenced to 12 years in jail for corruption and money-laundering, marking the first conviction of a leading Mubarak-era official since the February 11 revolution.

AFP - A court sentenced once feared Egyptian interior minister Habib al-Adly to 12 years for money-laundering on Thursday in the first trial of an official from the regime of ousted president Hosni Mubarak.

Adly, who ran Mubarak's security services for more than a decade before the strongman's overthrow in February in the face of 18 straight days of mass protests, was also convicted of illicitly enriching himself while in office.

He had pleaded not guilty to both charges.

The disgraced former minister now faces a second trial on charges of ordering police to open fire on demonstrators.
