The former head of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, Carlos Ghosn, scheduled a press conference on April 11, where he promised to tell the whole truth about his arrest and, probably, trumped-up charges of financial fraud. About this top manager said on Twitter.

Carlos Ghosn was detained on November 19, 2018 at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on suspicion of concealing income and misuse of funds. During the internal investigation initiated by the leadership of Nissan, it turned out that the head of the board paid for the purchase and repair of real estate at the company’s expense: he spent several billion yen on houses in Rio de Janeiro, Beirut, Paris and Amsterdam.

Later, Nissan filed a lawsuit against Claudine Bishara de Oliveira, the elder sister of Carlos Ghosn. She was accused of “illegal enrichment”: according to insiders, Oliveira had a nominal position of consultant and she received a fair reward. In addition, Nissan filed a lawsuit against the daughter of Ghosn Caroline, demanding the arrest of apartments in Rio de Janeiro and all things there.

The Nissan board of directors, convened after the arrest of Ghosn, voted unanimously to remove him from the post of chairman of the board of directors. This example was followed by Mitsubishi. Ghosn decided to leave Renault on his own and filed a resignation while in custody. In early March of this year, the court allowed Ghosn to be released on bail of billion yen.
