💰1MDB -Hollywood & The Wolf of Wall Street

The Billion-Dollar Mystery Man and the Wildest Party Vegas Ever Saw
Armed with a seemingly bottomless supply of cash, an unassuming Malaysian named Jho Low staged the ultimate extravaganza

#1MDB global financial scandal that has spread from Malaysia to Hollywood

Accepting his 2014 Golden Globe Award for acting in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Leonardo DiCaprio thanked “Joey, Riz and Jho,”

“for taking a risk on this movie.”
The film is based on the memoir of a stockbroker who defrauded investors out of millions of dollars in the 1980s.
The three men — Joey McFarland, Riza Aziz and Jho Low — have since been accused in connection with an even bigger fraud: the theft of more than $4.5 billion from a Malaysian government investment fund known as #1MDB.
📌The good news is Justice Dept. Seized Money from Red Granite Co-Founder Joey McFarland's Bank Accounts

The newest charges in the case came against Riza, who was arrested in Malaysia last week and pleaded not guilty to laundering nearly a quarter of a billion dollars, in part to finance the movie.
🔑The globe-spanning investigation also has implicated a former Malaysian prime minister, employees of a Goldman Sachs, Pras Michael a member of the Fugees rap group and a top Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy

Pras Michel is accused in Washington of contributing funds to pro-Obama organizations without disclosing their foreign origin -- specifically Jho Low, who is accused of masterminding a massive diversion of cash from Malaysia’s 1MDB
