The Japanese press is lighting up with news about the Nissan boss who was kept in jail for 108 days. He is now recuperating after his release on bail on Wednesday. His lawyer appeared in the press stating that there was no set dates for a press conference. The 64-year old Ghosn has not spoken to the public and this makes sense – the Japanese prosecutors wanted to keep in in jail longer, much longer. Mr Ghosn was granted bail Tuesday by the Tokyo District Court following the third bail request, and the first from his upgraded legal team that seems to have given him an edge.
Currently the team has suggested that Mr Ghosn should only use computers during the day at the law office of his team and this is specifically to address the concerns of him tampering with evidence. The once hero-like auto executive`s wife has made it clear that he was not treated as well as he should, and the international community seems to agree.
The international community has stated that the Japanese tendency to hold suspects for long periods of time when they deny allegations against them is more or less like “hostage taking” according to some sources. The former Nissan boss was held then released on bail on Wednesday from the Tokyo Detention House, where he was held, since he was arrested on November 19. There were some experts who suggested that will be released in January but the allegations have been severe and some have been expanded upon. There is talk that cameras will be set up around his home to ensure his location is known at all times.
