During the uprising, the Egyptian attorney general announced Adly had been given a travel ban.
Following Mubarak's resignation, Adly and two other former ministers were arrested on corruption charges.
His assets were ordered frozen by a court order.
Adly is estimated to have amassed a fortune of 1.2 billion US dollars.
He pleaded not guilty to corruption charges on 5 March 2011, answering questions by the judge on whether he had illegally profited from his government position or laundered money by saying "that did not happen."
On 5 May 2011, Adly was found guilty of fraud
and money laundering
and sentenced to 12 years in prison.
In June 2012, Adly, along with deposed president Hosni Mubarak
, was found guilty of conspiring to kill protestors during the uprising and was sentenced to life in prison in May 2012.
In March 2013, the conviction for fraud and money laundering was overturned by the Court of Cassation
and a retrial was requested.
On retrial, Adly was acquitted on all charges relating to complicity in the killing of protesters as well as using political influence for private gain.
and was released from detention in March, 2015.
In April 2017, he was sentenced to 7 years in prison, based on charges of embezzling about $122 million.
In May 2018, the Cairo Court of Appeal began the retrial of former interior minister Adly and a number of other ministers. Together they are charged with siphoning off public funds
from the ministry in an amount exceeding LE 2 billion in the period between 2000 and 2011.
