Najib was arrested by Malaysian anti-corruption agents and Malaysian authorities said he will be charged in court on Wednesday.

Najib's arrest was in relation SRC International, a former 1MDB unit, a task force investigating the fund said.

The settlement that Riza's Red Granite Pictures reached addressed one among two dozen forfeiture lawsuits filed by the US against $1.7 billion of assets that were allegedly acquired through money diverted from 1MDB. In the USA, his production company had reached a $60 million settlement in a suit that alleged the movie was funded by money siphoned from 1MDB.

USA investigators say Riza's company, Red Granite Pictures Inc., used money stolen from 1MDB to finance Hollywood films including the Martin Scorsese-directed "The Wolf of Wall Street".
