Actor Leonardo DiCaprio (Leonardo DiCaprio) is accused of money fraud. The roots of the accusations lie in the investigation, which began in the summer. Then The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Department of justice plans to confiscate the proceeds of the film by Martin Scorsese (Martin Scorsese) “the Wolf of wall street” (The Wolf of Wall Street), which was released in 2013. It was found that its production was sponsored by the Malaysian state Fund 1MDB, who was accused of embezzling more than $3.5-billion Fund the Bruno Manser Fund believes that DiCaprio received funds from persons related to 1MDB, and therefore requires that the actor left his post as Ambassador to the United Nations on climate issues. This position he has held since 2014.
“Leonardo DiCaprio has repeatedly refused to explain the cause of their close personal and financial ties with key figures of the scandal surrounding 1MDB, says the BMF Director Lukas Straumann (Lukas Straumann). — This is unacceptable. If DiCaprio can’t distance themselves from the Malaysian corruption, he should resign as the Ambassador to the UN on climate issues. We cannot save the environment if we fail to stop corruption”.
