KUALA TERENGGANU: Ampang PKR Youth chief Datuk Adam Rosly may face disciplinary action from his party if convicted on corruption-related charges made against him, two days ago.
PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar in a statement said the party leadership would not compromise on issues involving corruption as the party held strongly to its principles of integrity, transparency and accountability.
"The PKR disciplinary committee will take action against any party member found guilty of breaking the law, especially corruption.
"Of course, we want those charged (in court) to be given fair treatment. However, if found guilty, the party will respect it (court decision) because integrity, transparency and accountability make up the key to the party.
"Anyone found guilty of violating the laws of Malaysia, including in corruption cases would be tried by the party''s disciplinary committee," she told reporters after the Keadilan Terengganu Convention 2017 here, today.
Terengganu PKR chairman Azan Ismail was also present at the convention.
Nurul Izzah, who is also Lembah Pantai MP said this when asked to comment on the case against the 30-year-old Adam, who is also a businessman.
Adam was charged at the Sessions Court in Kuala Lumpur two days ago, on six counts of giving false statements and forging documents during the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission''s investigation over the former's purchase of a luxury bungalow in Ampang.
Commenting on Adam's position as Ampang PKR Youth chief, Nurul Izzah said the matter had been discussed at the Youth wing-level, and it would be discussed at the central leadership soon. - BERNAMA
