Adam Rosly charged, posts RM300k bail at last minute
Ampang PKR division Youth head Adam Rosly Abdullah, who was today charged with six counts of giving false statements and documents to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), was able to come up with the RM300,000 bail.
Adam made the payment for the bail, imposed by the Sessions Court in Kuala Lumpur, just minutes before the registration counter at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex closed.
The counter, which normally opens until 4.30pm, only closed at 5.30pm to enable Adam Rosly to make the payment, with his wife, Puteri Balqis Omar, as the bailor.
Prior to that, a few of his family members were seen making withdrawals at the Automated Teller Machines (ATM) to come up with the bail amount set by the court.
Adam Rosly, 30, a businessman, was released at 5.40pm.
‘RM1.2m Disneyland bought with loans from ah long, grandmother’
A PKR Youth leader has claimed that he purchased a bungalow worth RM1.2 million with loans obtained from two “Ah Long” (loan sharks), his mother-in-law and grandmother, who has since passed on.
According to one of the charge sheets, Adam Rosly Abdullah told the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Feb 10 that he acquired the Disneyland-like bungalow in cash last year because he could not obtain a bank loan.
Of that amount, Adam told MACC he had borrowed RM400,000 from a loan shark identified as Leo, and RM100,000 from another loan shark identified as Ben.
The 30-year-old businessman also said he had borrowed RM100,000 from his mother-in-law, and another RM100,000 from his grandmother.
He then raised RM500,000 from selling cars, rent collection and business profits.
However, a separate charge sheet details how Adam (photo) later, on Feb 22, corrected his statement.
This time, the Ampang PKR Youth chief said he borrowed RM555,165 from Leo on a two-year loan. He also furnished supporting documents.
Of this amount, he had paid RM302,050, with RM253,115 still unpaid.
Adam had also submitted a document to prove that his grandmother gave him RM80,000 as a three-year loan in October 2016. He noted that his grandmother passed away on Jan 28 this year.
He also said that RM500,000 of the money used to purchase his bungalow came from the sale of cars.

Gerakan Youth: Wrong to arrest anyone based on ‘unusual wealth’
PETALING JAYA: It is unreasonable to arrest someone solely because of his “unusual” wealth, Gerakan’s Andy Yong said following the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) arrest of Ampang PKR Youth chief Adam Rosly.
“It will be unjustifiable if a person is arrested merely because he lives in a luxurious house or drives big cars or wears expensive watches.
“If this is the case, many politicians out there can be investigated or arrested,” the Gerakan Youth deputy chief said in a statement today.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki said Adam was being investigated under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
However, Yong said there was no provision in these acts for a person to be arrested due to “unusual” wealth.
“I am not questioning the integrity or professionalism of MACC, but they should inform exactly what are the related wrongful engagement or gratification or unlawful activities under the laws committed by Adam.
“Otherwise by arresting Adam simply due to his ‘unusual’ wealth, it would give a wrong perception to the public,” he said.

@AdamRosly exports furniture in bulk, deputy says
PKR Ampang division Youth chief Adam Rosly, who came under scrutiny after questions about his wealth were raised, is said to run a business exporting furniture overseas in bulk.
This is according to his deputy, Harris Idaham.
“He is doing furniture business, exporting it outside of Malaysia.
“He supplies furniture in big bulks… big amounts,” Harris told Malaysiakini when contacted today.
PKR’s Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin also confirmed that Adam was in the furniture business, in a WhatsApp message to Malaysiakini.
“Treat him like any businessman,” she said in the message.
She also clarified that he was not her special officer and that he was an elected leader of the party’s youth division in Ampang.
Rafizi urges PKR Youth leader to declare his assets https://shar.es/1IDiXF
KUALA LUMPUR: Ampang PKR Youth head Adam Rosly should declare his assets as soon as possible, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli said today.
Rafizi said it was the right thing to do to avoid “wasting everybody’s time”.
“Why do we want to waste the police’s time when they should be focusing on more important issues?
“Declaring your assets is a self-checking and self-regulatory mechanism. I think everyone should do it, more so Jamal (Yunos),” Rafizi told reporters outside the Dewan Rakyat today.
Asked if PKR would instruct Adam to do declare his assets, Rafizi said the party did not have such a rule for its members.
“I don’t think any party has such a rule requiring individuals to declare their assets. The declaration of assets, especially for individual members, is not in the Constitution.”

AMPANG: Ampang PKR Youth head Adam Rosly has challenged Red Shirts leader Jamal Yunos to lodge a report with the police or Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commision (MACC) over his extraordinary wealth.
The 28-year-old, who is also PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin’s special officer, is alleged to own a luxurious mansion in Jalan Pinang, Ampang.
According to Adam, having wealth or a “Datuk” title was not strange in this day and age.
“Why at 28, I’m rich? Many Malaysians know a lot of young people who are rich and many have received the ‘Datuk’ title.
“I would like to say that I got my ‘Datuk’ title same like Jamal. If he wants to dispute my title, then he (Jamal) also got his Datuk and Datuk Seri titles this year,” he said in front of the Ampang Jaya police station.
Adam also explained that he had bid for the RM1 million house and the property is not worth RM7 million as claimed by Jamal.
Reports will be filed with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) regarding the wealth of Ampang PKR Youth leader Adam Rosly.
This was revealed by Ampang Umno division chief Ismail Kijo and red-shirts leader Jamal Md Yunos after taking journalists and photographs on a helicopter ride for an aerial view of the bungalow and luxury cars.
“After this, we will go to Putrajaya and file a report with MACC, asking them to investigate his source or wealth.
“We also want LHDN to check if Adam has paid taxes,” Ismail told reporters outside the PKR Youth leader’s residence.
