“I have not fled justice – I have escaped injustice and political persecution. I can now finally communicate freely with the media, and look forward to starting next week,” said Mr Carlos Ghosn, the ex-CEO of Nissan who has come under pressure and was arrested for a wide range of infractions. The former Nissan Chairman and a colleague were accused of a long list of financial misdeeds – an internal investigation starting about 12 months ago suggests that Ghosn pocketed excess pay and violated rules on forms of payment.
Currently, Mr Ghosn is in Lebanon and no one knows how he got there, somehow running away from the law in Japan. He now claims that he was not allowed his rights to speak saying that there was a “flagrant disregard of Japanese legal obligations under the international law and treaties it is bound to uphold.” Mr Ghosn has been in and out of custody for the past 12 months, after he was accused in September 2018 by Japanese executives at Nissan.
