Malaysia: 1MDB: Malaysia drops charges against Wolf of Wall Street producer

Prosecutors in Malaysia have dropped charges against Wolf of Wall Street producer Riza Aziz over the multi-billion-dollar 1MDB scandal.

Mr Riza, stepson of former Prime Minister Najib Razak, was accused of money-laundering over allegations he received $250m (£221m) from 1MDB – a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund.

He has agreed to pay a sum back, but officials are not saying how much.

His stepfather still faces charges, which he denies.

A joint-founder of Red Granite Productions, he is alleged to have received $248m (£219m) from the fund and faced five charges of money-laundering.
