French minister is surprised by the news that Ghosn has fled to Lebanon

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — French Minister of State for Economic Affairs Agnes Pagnier-Ronneche said on Tuesday that news that Carlos Ghosn, the former president of Nissan Motors from Japan to Lebanon, had been “very surprised”, adding that she had heard about it through the media.

Bannier-Ronneche told France Inter radio that no one was above the law, but Ghosn would be able to obtain French consular assistance as a French citizen.

Ghosn confirmed that he had fled to Lebanon and said that he would not be “hostage” to a “counterfeit” judicial system, which raises questions about how one of the most famous executives in the world escaped from Japan months before his trial.
