MACC confirms arrest of PKR’s Adam Rosly


PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has confirmed it has arrested Ampang PKR Youth chief Adam Rosly to assist in an investigation into his “unusual” wealth.

According to MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki, Adam is being investigated under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.

“He was arrested at 2.30pm today at MACC’s headquarters in Putrajaya.

“We felt there is a need to arrest him to assist our investigation after obtaining other statements prior to this,” he said when contacted.

Azam also said MACC would apply for a remand order tomorrow.

“He is now considered a suspect in this case.”

Adam presented himself at the MACC headquarters this afternoon to provide a statement for the second time. The first was on Feb 10.

Adam’s alleged wealth came to public knowledge after Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos alleged that he owned a bungalow and a number of luxury cars, despite having held a post in PKR for only a term.

Adam, who is also the special officer to Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin, had denied any wrongdoing and said his wealth came from business ventures and an inheritance.
