Los Angeles, Oct 28: An anti-corruption NGO has urged Oscar winning actor Leordo DiCaprio to “do the right thing” and pay back his earnings from “The Wolf of Wall Street” should the US Justice Department find that they are linked to a multi-billion dollar 1MDB Malaysian corruption scandal. DiCaprio earned at least $25 million from the 2013 film. “If he knows these are corrupt funds, we would very much like to see him return them,” Samantha Grant of Transparency Intertiol, a Berlin-based non-governmental organisation that looks to combat global corruption and prevent crimil activities arising from it, told hollywoodreporter.com. “If that money is found by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to be corrupt, to not give it back sort of says that money that was due to go to the Malaysian public is sitting in Leordo DiCaprio’s account,” Grant added.
