On the first and second counts, Adam Rosly was charged with giving false statements to two MACC officers about his career as a businessman and his income, luxury cars and a bungalow worth RM1.2 million in Kampung Melayu Ampang.
He allegedly claimed that he had bought the assets with cash, a loan of RM200,000 from his mother-in-law and late grandmother, as well as a loan of RM500,000 from an ah long (loan shark).
For the third to sixth charges, he is alleged to have used falsified documents comprising two loan agreements with two individuals, and two cash vouchers from his company, Gegas Mentari Holding Sdn. Bhd., with the intention of misleading the MACC.
All the charges provide for a fine of up to RM3 million or a jail term of up to five years or both upon conviction. — Bernama
