In Tokyo, the court refused to release on the security of the former chairman of the board of directors of the auto concern Nissan Carlos
Ghosn. This was reported by NHK. In court, they considered that a 64-year-old top manager could destroy important evidence or run abroad. Ghosn has been in prison since November 19, 2018.

In turn, Ghosn promised not to leave the country. He is also ready to give away his passports and put on a special bracelet to track his movements. However, his application was rejected by the court.

The spouse 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.

This is the third attempt of Ghosn to get out of prison on bail. Earlier, the court denied him this request, considering that a top manager could influence witnesses or escape to another country. Ghosn, in turn, refused to plead guilty to financial fraud. During the hearings, he pleaded not guilty, stressing that his arrest was “unfounded”.

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.

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.
