Is “Adam Rosly Abdullah” in RM4m fraud case linked to Zuraida’s office a reference to ex-Ampang PKR Youth chief?

THE office of former PKR Wanita chief Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin has denied any connection with the individual known as “Adam Rosly Abdullah” either as a staff or representative in light of a RM4 mil fraud which was orchestrated by the latter.

“Our side has never appointed the above nominee or any individual or group to act as a representative on our behalf for any matter,” the office of Zuraida who was a three-term Ampang MP pointed out in a statement.

“Therefore, our side will not be responsible for any statement or action that has been/will be made by this particular individual or group which clearly has nothing to do with our office.”

Interestingly, a search by FocusM revealed that former Ampang PKR Youth chief Adam Rosly had on May 30, 2018 denied that he was working for Zuraida who was then the housing and local government minister.

Recall that the Kuala Lumpur High Court had on Nov 25, 2019 upheld a six-month jail sentence imposed by the Sessions Court on Adam for six charges of giving false information to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) during investigations into his unverified wealth.

He was subsequently sentenced in April 2018 to six months’ imprisonment and slapped with a RM30,000 fine for the said offence.

Among others, Adam was also accused of using falsified documents comprising two loan agreements with two individuals, and two cash vouchers from his company, Gegas Mentari Holding Sdn Bhd, with the intention of misleading MACC investigating officers.

At any rate, Zuraida’s office requested anyone who has been a victim of the above nominee or has been contacted by any party claiming to be a representative of the office or the personal representative of Zuraida to inform the office immediately.

“Any question/clarification/confirmation/complaint about this matter can be sent to us via email [email protected],” added Zuraida’s office. – July 23, 2023
