The arrested Carlos Ghosn accused of illegally receiving funds through the company Mitsubishi

Former head of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi automobile alliance, Carlos Ghosn, is suspected of illegally obtaining about 7.82 million euros through the joint venture Mitsubishi.

At the same time, the audit did not reveal any violations on the part of Carlos Ghosn when managing Mitsubishi itself. In November last year, the leadership of the Japanese automaker decided to dismiss Carlos Ghosn from the post of chairman of the board of directors.

The head of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, Carlos Ghosn, was detained on November 19th. Japanese police suspect a 64-year-old top manager of tax evasion. For this, he deliberately distorted information about the amount of his own payments. Investigators began investigating a top manager after reports from an anonymous informant inside the auto concern.

Ghosn himself still refuses to plead guilty to financial fraud. During the hearing, he pleaded not guilty. Ghosn stressed that his arrest is “unfounded.”

In turn, the spouse of the former chairman of the board of directors of the automaker Nissan said that she had been “mistreated” by her husband in a Japanese prison. According to Carol Ghosn, her husband is currently in extremely harsh conditions. She appealed to Human Rights Watch with a request to “shed light on ill-treatment.”
