Cairo’s criminal court adjourned the money laundry trial of former Minister of Interior, ‎Habib Al-Adly until tomorrow

Cairo’s criminal court adjourns the money laundering trial of former interior minister ‎Habib Al-Adly for tomorrow, upon the defence team’s request. ‎
Al-Adly is facing a number of other charges, including playing a major role in ‎the killing of protesters ‎during Egypt’s 25 January Revolution.‎
If found guilty of giving the order to kill protesters during the revolution, the minimum sentence that the court must impose is 15 years in ‎prison, while the maximum is a death sentence.‎

Some police forces used live ammunition to disperse the crowds in many Egyptian cities ‎during the ‎18-day revolt, and some poor civilians have come forward to confess they were paid and given instructions to use force, allegedly by instruction from top officials.
