CAIRO, May 9 (Xinhua) -- An Egyptian court on Thursday acquitted former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly in a retiral of his corruption case, the official news agency MENA reported.
Adly, who served under former President Hosni Mubarak, was sentenced in April 2017 to seven years in prison after being convicted of embezzlement of public funds.
In January last year, Egypt's Cassation Court, the top appeals court, revoked the verdict and ordered a retrial.
Adly was also cleared, during a retrial in 2014, along with Mubarak and six aides, of charges related to killing protesters during the 2011 uprising which led to Mubarak's downfall.
Adly has already served a three-year sentence for taking advantage of his position and forcing police conscripts to work for him.
