Arrested in Japan, Carlos Ghosn resigned as chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Renault

Former head of Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors Carlos Ghosn, who is under arrest in Japan, left the post of general director of Renault. It is reported by Bloomberg, with reference to the Minister of Economy and Finance of France Bruno Le Mayor. The post of chairman of the Renault board of directors was taken by the head of Michelin Jean-Dominique Senart. In turn, Thierry Bollor became CEO of the company.

Carlos Ghosn was dismissed as chairman of the board of directors of Nissan Motor Co. November 22. 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.

Ghosn has been in prison since November 19, 2018. He is suspected 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.

The wife of the former chairman of the board of directors of the automaker Nissan has already declared “mistreatment” that her husband faced in a Japanese prison. She sent the corresponding letter to the human rights organization Human Rights Watch. 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” with 64-year-old Carlos Ghosn.
