Waiting for trial in Japan, ex-head of Nissan left for Lebanon

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Former head of Renault and Nissan Carlos Ghosn, who was awaiting trial in Japan, arrived in the capital of Lebanon, Bloomberg and Lebanese media reported on Tuesday, citing informed sources.

According to them, Ghon left Japan because he did not believe that he would be provided with a fair hearing of his case. Accused of financial abuses, the former head of Nissan in Japan was on his own recognizance. At the same time, media sources do not exclude that the 65-year-old Gon could have gone legally to Lebanon – as part of an agreement with the Japanese judicial authorities.

Carlos Ghosn has the citizenship of France, Brazil and Lebanon. He is a Lebanese Christian by origin.
