Giza’s Criminal Court is to return a verdict on the money laundering and ill-gotten gains trial of former Egyptian minister of interior Habib El-Adly on Thursday.
El-Adly, who was sacked and arrested in the early days of the January 25 Revolution, is accused of abusing his authority to accumulate illegal profits since his appointment in 1997.
He is also accused of ordering the killing of peaceful protesters in the 18-day revolt, which instigated the ouster of former president Hosni Mubarak, also in police custody facing charges.
Throughout the four sessions-trial on illicit profiteering, El-Adly has pleaded not guilty. He claims innocence on the rest of the charges.
