Former interior minister's trial for murdering protesters postponed to give lawyers time to study evidence

The trial of former minister of interior Habib El-Adly has been postponed to 14 August.

The trial was delayed after El-Adly’s lawyer asked for time to study evidence, including official police records, submitted to the court today.

El-Adly and six of his former senior assistants stand accused of killing and injuring hundreds of protesters during the January 25 Revolution against the Mubarak dictatorship.

El-Adly is already serving a 17-year sentence in two other cases related to corruption.
