MALAYSIA – Datuk Adam Rosly, 29, a youth opposition leader at the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) was remanded for five days to allow the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate into his “unusual wealth”. The MACC is Malaysia’s efforts to combat corruption.
Rosly, a businessman, recently made headlines in November last year for owning a “castle-like” house and a fleet of luxury cars in Ampang. Rosly asserted that his source of wealth was “through various businesses that he inherited from his family”.
The controversy started when Umno’s Sungei Besar division chief, Jamal Yunos, took journalists on a helicopter to get an aerial view of Rosly’s estate.

Although Datuk Adam Rosly does not hold prominent public functions within the Malaysian Government, he is the special officer to Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin. At this point of time, there is no conclusive evidence to suggest any illegal activities connected to his source of wealth.
