Round four for Riza Aziz at MACC over matters linked to 1MDB

-A +A

PUTRAJAYA (July 6): Riza Aziz, the 48-year old stepson of ousted former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak, and producer of the Hollywood movie "The Wolf Of Wall Street" has arrived at Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission for the fourth day since Tuesday.

This morning, Riza arrived at 9:45am, ahead of his 10:30am appointment, in a black Audi car and ccompanied by two laywers led by Datuk K. Kumaraendran.

Yesterday, Riza spent a little over six hours, where he had entered the MACC headquarters at 11:15am, slightly behind the 10:30am schedule, and left at around 6:40pm.

Since he was first summoned to the MACC headquarters, Riza has not spoken nor responded to questions posed by media representatives.
The MACC has been quizzing Riza for three straight days since Tuesday, and to-date, he had spent 20 hours in the graftbuster's premises. 

Riza was apparently grilled by the MACC over his links to the funds allegedly sourced from 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and channeled to his Los Angeles movie production firm, Red Granite Pictures Inc, which he co-founded.

In March this year, Red Granite Pictures agreed to pay US$60 million to the U.S. Justice Department to settle claims it financed Oscar-nominated film "Wolf of Wall Street" and two other big-budget movies, "'Daddy's Home" and "Dumb and Dumber To", using over US$100 million funds said to have been sourced from 1MDB.
