PKR Youth chief to co­op­er­ate with MACC over ‘cas­tle house’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Am­pang PKR Youth chief Datuk Adam Rosly (pix) yes­ter­day ex­pressed will­ing­ness to co­op­er­ate with the po­lice or Malaysian An­ti­Cor­rup­tion Com­mi­sion (MACC) fol­low­ing rev­e­la­tions of his cas­tle-like home in Am­pang.

Stat­ing that he made his money from var­i­ous busi­nesses in­her­ited from his fam­ily, Adam said he was able to af­ford the house as he was suc­cess­ful in his ven­tures.

“It is not strange to have a ‘Datuk’ ti­tle or wealth in this day and age.

“Many Malaysians are aware of young peo­ple who are rich and have re­ceived their ‘Datuk­ship’ as well,” he said af­ter lodg­ing a po­lice re­port against Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Ja­mal Yunos for gath­er­ing in front of his house in Am­pang on Sun­day.

The 28-year-old stressed that the house in ques­tion had only cost him RM1 mil­lion in­stead of RM7 mil­lion as al­leged.

“I had won the bid for the house, which was an aban­doned project, dur­ing a bank auc­tion.

“I do not have any po­si­tion in the Se­lan­gor gov­ern­ment and PKR Youth has al­ways en­sured that its mem­bers are not cor­rupt. “If I was, I would not be openly build­ing such a home in an area like this,” he said.

He called on Ja­mal to not engage in gut­ter pol­i­tics.

Adam’s re­sponse came af­ter Ja­mal had called him out to ex­plain the pur­chase of the house as well as the source of his wealth.

Ja­mal had brought the me­dia to make an ae­rial ob­ser­va­tion of the prop­erty in a he­li­copter prior to mak­ing his al­le­ga­tions.
