Jamal lodges MACC report, calls for probe on Ampang MP

jamalyunos-sprmPUTRAJAYA: The chairman of the Malaysian Federation of NGOs, Jamal Md Yunos, today lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) against Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin.

The report is believed to be related to the extraordinary wealth allegedly possessed by a young Selangor PKR leader, Adam Rosly.

Jamal, who is also the Sungai Besar Umno Division head, said he was doubtful how a young leader with the title “Datuk” could allegedly possess such extraordinary wealth at the age of 28.

“If a follower can possess such wealth, certainly the leader would have much more than that,” he told reporters at the MACC office, here today.

Jamal said he handed some of the evidence and documents to the MACC to carry out follow-up investigations on Zuraida.

The young PKR leader was remanded for five days since April 14. His remand order was extended for another four days beginning tomorrow to assist in investigations under Section 14 (1) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities (Amla) Act 2001.

The man attracted attention after the media reported on his extraordinary wealth, including his alleged ownership of a multi-million ringgit bungalow and several luxury cars although he had only recently held a position in PKR.
