year. The only way for Leonardo DiCaprio to avoid retirement to clear his name from
allegations of involvement in illegal financial transactions.
So Lukas Straumann, Director of the Swiss organization
taking care to preserve the forests in Malaysia, directly accused Leo of links with the
currently under investigation with corrupt Malaysian businessmen. “We
can’t protect the environment if we don’t stop corruption!” he said.
And said that Leo, the discredited criminal ties with people

to return, Di Caprio made earlier generous donations, because they
are “dirty money.”
The whole story began when Interpol opened in

it was stolen more than a billion dollars. And some of them allegedly through
his business partner, the Malaysian businessman Joe Lowe, were in
