KUALA LUMPUR — April 21, 2017: Ampang Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Youth chief  Datuk Adam Rosly Abdullah was today with six counts of giving false statements and documents to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) during investigation on his alleged extraordinary wealth.

He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

On the first and second counts, Adam Rosly, 30,  was charged with giving false statements to two MACC investigating officers pertaining to his employment as a businessman and  income, as well as on his purchase of luxury cars, a bungalow worth RM1.2 million in Kampung Melayu Ampang which he paid in cash, loans of RM200,000 from his mother-in-law and grandmother and RM500,000 from an ah long (loan shark).

For the third to the sixth counts, he was charged with using false documents, comprising two agreements for loans from two individuals and two cash vouchers from his company,  Gegas Mentari Holding Sdn. Bhd., with intention to deceive the officers.

All the offences were allegedly committed last February at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya.

MACC deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Akram Gharib offered bail of RM400,000 with one surety but lawyer Ahmad Zaidi Zainal for Adam Rosly requested for bail of RM150,000 on grounds that his client’s income was not much and there was no risk of him fleeing the country as his wife and children are in Malaysia.

The court set bail at RM300,000 in one surety and also for Adam Rosly to surrender his passport and fixed May 29 for mention.

Adam Rosly’s wife and family members were in court, as was PKR’s Ampang Member of Parliament Zuraida Kamaruddin. — Bernama
