His family members and supporters managed to raise the money and handed it to court staff at 5.30pm.

Some of them were earlier seen at a bank auto-teller machine (ATM) at the Kuala Lumpur Courts Complex, withdrawing cash to raise the money to secure Adam’s release.

They were also seen talking to court staff at the bail counter, apparently pleading with them not to send Adam back into custody.

Adam was only released at 5.40pm and spoke briefly to reporters.

He, his wife and daughter posed for photographers and videographers when requested.

“Thank you to the media for waiting. I have given my full cooperation to SPRM and they have investigated my case accordingly,” he said, referring to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

When asked what he thought of his arch rival, Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Yunos, who offered to help him by raising RM20,000 in legal fees, Adam briefly said, “Thank you, Datuk Jamal”.

On Tuesday, Jamal told reporters he sympathised with Adam because he was a “young man who has fallen victim to the bad politicians in PKR”.

Earlier today, Adam claimed trial at the Sessions Court here to six charges related to giving false evidence to the authorities.

He was charged under Sections 32(8)(c) and 89 of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (AMLATFA) for providing forged documents purporting to be valid documents.

The Sessions Court allowed RM300,000 bail for Adam, pending disposal of his case.
