If former Egyptian interior minister Habib El-Hadly will be found guilty of intentional killings during January's anti-government protests, he could face a minimum of 15 years imprisonment, or the maximum penalty of capital punishment.

Egypt's State Prosecution has referred the former Egyptian interior minister Habib El-Adly and other senior security officials to the criminal court for trial. The group is accused not only of intentially killing protesters, but also damaging public and private property which may have harmed the Egyptian national economy, creating a security vacuum, and terrorizing Egyptian citizens.
