PKR leader Adam Rosly is expected to be charged tomorrow while his bungalow in Ampang which has been likened to 'Disneyland' was also seized by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Adam, who is Ampang PKR Youth chief, is expected 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 2001.
Section 32(8)(c) concerns the furnishing of false or misleading information to investigators while Section 89 concerns the falsification, concealment and destruction of documents.
Both offences carry a fine of up to RM3 million or imprisonment of up to five years or both.
When contacted, MACC deputy commissioner (operations) Azam Baki confirmed the matter.
The MACC had been investigating Adam's wealth following reports that he purchased the property for RM1.2 million in cash.
He was arrested on April 13 while giving a statement to the MACC and was subsequently remanded to facilitate investigations.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
