KUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court today sentenced Ampang PKR Youth chief Adam Rosly to six months’ jail and a RM30,000 fine for giving false statements to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in a graft probe.

Adam was charged with committing the offences at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya between Feb 10 and Feb 22 last year.

The 31-year-old was arrested by MACC for investigation into his “unusual” wealth, which came to public knowledge after Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos claimed that he owned a bungalow and a number of luxury cars, despite having held a post in PKR for only one term.

Adam denied any wrongdoing and said his wealth had come from business ventures and an inheritance.

MACC had also seized Adam’s RM1.2 million castle-styled bungalow and five luxury cars.

His bank account, and that of his wife, which contain over RM212,000, were also frozen.

Adam faced six charges. On the first two charges, he was accused of giving false recorded statements to two MACC investigating officers, under Section 32(8)(c) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.

On four other charges, he allegedly used two fake loan agreement documents from two individuals and two cash vouchers from his company to mislead MACC investigating officers, under Section 89 of the same Act.
