Nurul Izzah downplays Adam-Rafizi public spat

izaah-rafizi-roslyKAJANG: PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar has downplayed the feud between fellow party members Adam Rosly and Rafizi Ramli, saying the public should not pay too much attention on the former.

“He is currently on leave from PKR, so there is no need to give him too much attention.

“We, as the opposition should focus on fighting against BN instead,” she told reporters briefly after attending a forum at a private college here.

Nurul, who is also the Lembah Pantai MP, said this when asked for her reaction to the current raging feud between Adam, who is PKR Ampang Youth chief and Rafizi, a vice- president of PKR and Pandan MP.

Yesterday, Adam challenged Rafizi to reveal the incomes and expenditures of two organisations he oversees – Invoke Malaysia and the National Oversight & Whistleblowers Centre (NOW).

Rafizi obliged, stating that Invoke obtained funds totalling 2,780,652, from the time of its formation in November 2015 till April 30 this year through its various fund-raising events. Rafizi also disclosed that NOW, which was launched in August 2012, did not have any income in 2016 and 2017, as there was no fund-raising event or campaign held for the entity.

The feud started when Rafizi told Adam, who is also a businessman, that he should declare his assets and go on leave pending the outcome of his trial.

Adam is currently facing six charges in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court relating to giving false evidence to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). He has since taken leave from PKR, pending the disposal of his charges.

His alleged wealth was made public after Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos claimed that Adam owned a bungalow and a number of luxury cars, despite having held a post in PKR for only one term.

The MACC has since seized Adam’s RM1.2 million bungalow and five luxury cars, as well as frozen his bank accounts.
