The court refused to release Carlos Ghosn on bailJanuary 15, 2019
The court left the former chairman of the board of directors of the automaker Nissan Carlos Gona under arrest. The top manager himself refused to plead guilty to financial fraud
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 influence witnesses or escape to another country.
Gon himself said that even before the court decision, he knew that he would be left under arrest. A top manager has been in prison for about two months.
At the same time, Ghosn still refuses to plead guilty to financial fraud. During the hearing, he pleaded not guilty. Ghosn stressed that his arrest is “unfounded.”
In turn, the spouse of the former chairman of the board of directors of the automaker Nissan said that she had been “mistreated” by her husband in a Japanese prison. She has already 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.
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.
