Carlos Ghosn is charged with new chargesJanuary 11, 2019
The Tokyo Prosecutor’s Office brought new accusations against the former chairman of the board of directors of the Nissan automaker Carlos Ghosn. A top manager is suspected of trying to get rid of losses amounting to about $ 16.7 million, which the company has taken to manage his personal assets, rewriting them in Nissan, reports TASS. Prosecutors believe that this happened during the global financial crisis in 2008. Thus, most likely, the arrest of 64-year-old Gonu on January 11 will be extended again.
Also, Japanese police suspect a top manager of tax evasion. For this, he deliberately distorted information about the amount of his own payments. Investigators began an investigation into Carlos Ghosn after reports of an anonymous informant inside the auto concern.
The prosecutor’s office believes that Ghosn declared only half of his income within five years. In this case, the undeclared funds should have been paid to the top manager as a severance pay after leaving the company. Under Japanese law, the severance pay must also be declared.
This week, Carlos Ghosn appeared in court for the first time. A top manager refused to plead guilty to financial fraud. During the hearing, he pleaded not guilty. Ghosn stressed that his arrest is “unfounded.”
Carlos Ghosn was dismissed as chairman of the board of directors of Nissan Motor Co. November 22. In addition, Greg Kelly, a member of the board of directors, who is also suspected of financial fraud, was also dismissed. Later, the leadership of the Japanese automaker Mitsubishi also decided to dismiss Carlos Ghosn from the post of chairman of the board of directors. The Board of Directors of the company is headed by Osamu Masuko.
