Investigators began investigating a top manager after reports from an anonymous informant inside the auto concern.
Carlos Ghosn himself refused to plead guilty to financial fraud. During interrogations, he declared his innocence to the investigators. Ghosn stressed that he did not underestimate the amount of his income in the reports for the exchange.
Carlos Ghosn was dismissed from his post as chairman of the board of directors of Nissan Motor Co. November 22. In addition, Greg Kelly, 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 will be headed by Osamu Masuko.
In Renault, the temporary president of the concern is Thierry Bollore. The company explained that Carlos Ghosn is “temporarily incapacitated,” but remains the chairman and chief executive officer.
