KHAIRAH N. KARIM


PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today was granted a four-day remand extension on Ampang PKR Youth chief Datuk Adam Rosly to facilitate investigation into his wealth.


The 28-year-old man, who had been remanded for five days since April 14, was ordered by magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman to serve his remand extension beginning tomorrow.


Adam is being investigated under Section 4(1) of the Anti-Money-Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act (AMLATFA) 2001.


He found himself at the centre of a controversy over the legitimacy of his wealth, following revelations that he owned a ‘castle-like’ house and luxury cars despite his young age.


The young 'Datuk' presented himself at the MACC headquarters here at 2.30pm on April 13 and had his statement recorded to assist investigations into his assets.
