PUTRAJAYA: Ampang PKR Youth head Adam Rosly today had his remand order extended by four days until April 22 to facilitate investigations into allegations of his “extraordinary wealth”.
According to Bernama, he was taken to the Magistrate’s Court here in hand-cuffs and orange lock-up attire at 9.18am by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers.
Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman later issued the remand order following the submission of the application for an extension by the MACC.
The 28-year-old, who carries a ‘Datuk’ title, is being investigated under Section 14 (1) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act, 2001.
Adam was arrested at the MACC headquarters here last Thursday when he showed up to give a statement in connection with the investigation. He was then remanded for five days on Friday.
His apparent wealth came under the limelight after media reports emerged on alleged possessions like bungalows worth millions of ringgit and several luxury cars.
On Nov 17 last year, Umno Youth executive councillor Armand Azha Abu Hanifah alleged that Adam got wealthy because he was an intermediary for Zuraida and the Selangor government in getting projects in the state.
Armand claimed to have been informed that Adam was a “playmaker” who was allegedly paid commissions in his handling of sand-mining projects in Selangor.
On April 16, PKR’s Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin reportedly said she was made to understand by Adam’s lawyer that the MACC had no proof to support the allegation and needed more time for the investigation.
