Ampang PKR Youth chief Adam to be charged soon

PETALING JAYA: Ampang PKR Youth chief Datuk Adam Rosly is expected to be charged today with providing forged documents to the authorities.

It is learnt that Adam, 29, is to be charged under Section 32(8)(c) and Section 89 of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.

He is currently under remand until tomorrow to assist in a probe by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) into his “unusual wealth”.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki confirmed the matter, but declined to elaborate.

It is learnt Adam had given statements and false documents to the anti-graft body during questioning.

Sources said his house in Ampang, purchased with RM1.2mil in cash, had been seized in the course of the investigation.

On April 13, he was detained after his statement was recorded at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya.

Adam, the special officer to Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin, was first questioned by the MACC on Feb 10.

He claimed that he had amassed his wealth through business ventures and inheritance from his family.

His wealth came into the limelight after Red Shirt leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos questioned how he was able to own a castle-style bungalow in Ampang at such a young age.
