PUTRAJAYA: Ampang PKR Youth leader, Datuk Adam Rosly, who allegedly owns a ‘Disneyland-like’ bungalow in Ampang, was remanded for five days today to assist in investigations into his “unusual' wealth”.

The 28-year-old posed for photographers and waved at reporters when he arrived at the magistrate’s court here at 9.25am, accompanied by two Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers and his lawyer.

Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman issued the remand order, which takes effect today.

The remand order expires on April 18.

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

He had presented himself at the MACC headquarters here at 2.30pm yesterday and had his statement recorded to assist investigations into his assets.

Adam found himself plunged into controversy over the legitimacy of his wealth following revelations by Red Shirts leader, Datuk Jamal Yunos, that he owns a ‘castle-like’ house and luxury cars, despite his young age.
