DOJ: Wolf of Wall Street 'lead actor' gambled with Jho Low, Riza

Penang-born tycoon Jho Low withdrew US$1.15 million from his account at a Las Vegas casino to gamble with several individuals, including Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's stepson Riza Aziz, and the lead actor of Hollywood film ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) said.

In its civil suits to seize assets allegedly acquired by siphoning funds from 1MDB, the department listed the US$1.15 million as part of US$41 million purportedly diverted from 1MDB by Riza to pay off gambling expenses for himself, Low, and their associate Eric Tan Kim Loong.
