Egyptian authorities have arrested former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly, who was convicted on corruption charges earlier this year, local security sources said Tuesday.
“The ministry discovered where al-Adly was hiding and moved to arrest him with a view to implementing court rulings handed down against him earlier,” Egypt’s official news agency quoted unnamed security sources as saying.
Al-Adly is now expected to be taken to a Cairo prison where he will serve his jail term, the sources said.
In April, a Cairo court sentenced al-Adly -- who served as interior minister under former President Hosni Mubarak -- to seven years imprisonment.
Al-Adly’s whereabouts had been unknown at the time of his sentencing.
In 2015, judicial authorities referred al-Adly to court for the illegal appropriation of some 2.4 billion Egyptian pounds ($136 million) while serving as interior minister from 1997 to 2011.
Police said the suspect, 25-year-old Alek Minassian, was not known to them before Monday's carnage in Canada's most populous city, which also left 15 people injured.
