PETALING JAYA, Apr 20 – Ampang PKR Youth chief Datuk Adam Rosly is expected to be charged Friday with providing forged documents to the authorities.

His RM1.2mil castle-style bungalow in Ampang has also been seized by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in its probe into his “unusual wealth”.

It is learnt that Adam, 29, is to be charged under Section 32(8)(c) and Section 89 of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.

He is currently under remand until Saturday to assist in the MACC probe.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki confirmed the matter but declined to elaborate.

It is learnt Adam had given statements and false documents to the anti-graft body during questioning.

On April 13, he was detained after his statement was recorded at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya.

Adam, the special officer to Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin, was first questioned by the MACC on Feb 10.

He claimed that he had amassed his wealth through business ventures and inheritance from his family.

Adam said his Datukship was from Pahang for his contributions to several projects in the state.

His wealth came into the limelight after Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos questioned how he was able to own the castle-style bungalow in Ampang at such a young age.

Jamal claimed the house cost RM7mil but Adam said he bought it at an auction for RM1mil.

So far, the MACC has seized five luxury vehicles – a Mini Cooper, a BMW 5 Series, a Mercedes-Benz C200, an Audi A6 and a Toyota Vellfire – in the course of its probe.

Eight accounts under Adam and his wife’s names, with money amounting to RM212,461.41, have been frozen.
