Earlier in 2019, it was alleged that Aziz had received $248 million from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). The institution found by former Prime Minister Najib in 2009, had embezzled over $4.5 billion and Aziz was also among the beneficiaries.

However, after reaching a deal with state prosecutors, the session court judge ruled to withdraw the five counts of money laundering against the Hollywood producer.
