The defendants were convicted of using their influence to illegally acquire EGP2.4 billion (around USD 132 million) when Adly was the minister of interior.
Adly served as ousted president Hosni Mubarak's minister of interior from 1997 until 2011.
In 2014, he was acquitted, along with six of his aides, on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during the January 25 Revolution in 2011.
