PUTRAJAYA – Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos has called on the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin.
“If I see that my employee has wealth that is beyond his means, like 10 houses and 20 cars, I would have more than the employee, which is why we suspect her,” he said at a press conference after submitting documents on the Wanita PKR chief at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya Tuesday.
He claimed that the documents contain evidence on the involvement of Zuraida’s younger siblings in companies that have received projects under the Selangor state government.
“We do not want power bestowed on the Selangor government to be used for the interest of certain individuals,” said Jamal.
The Red Shirts leader said it is widely known that Ampang PKR Youth chief Datuk Adam Rosly is Zuraida’s special officer, and he even has a name card from Adam stating it.
The 29-year-old Adam was remanded when he went to the MACC headquarters here to have his statement recorded last week.
His remand was extended for another four days on Tuesday.
The case is being investigating under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.
Adam’s wealth came into focus after his political opponents questioned how he was able to afford his castle-style bungalow in Ampang at his age.
Jamal also said that Adam is a victim of circumstances and offered to help pay for his legal fees.
He had previously claimed that Adam’s bungalow was worth RM7mil, but this was refuted by Adam, who said it was worth RM1mil.
Adam had also said that he made his wealth through business and a family inheritance.
