CAIRO: An Egyptian court on Thursday overturned a seven-year prison sentence against ex-president Hosni Mubarak’s interior minister Habib al-Adly and ordered a retrial on accusations of embezzlement, a judicial official said. Adly’s lawyer Fareed al-Deeb told AFP the former minister will be released from jail after the ruling pending the retrial. Adly was sentenced in April 2017 to seven years in prison along with 10 other former officials for embezzling about $122 million. On Thursday, the court accepted appeals by the 10 officials and granted them a retrial also, the official said
