Ghosn set for continued detention as new charges filed

14 January 2019

It also signals that prosecutors remain undeterred by Ghosn's recent assertion of innocence in court.

Suspects in Japan are routinely held for months until trials start, and Tokyo prosecutors maintain that Ghosn, a Brazilian-born Frenchman of Lebanese ancestry, is a flight risk.

Munoz said in a statement on LinkedIn Saturday he made the decision after serious thinking because the company was "involved in matters that have and will continue to divert its focus", referring to Ghosn's case.

Ghosn, arrested November 19, has been charged with breach of trust and falsifying financial reports and remains detained in Tokyo. "In all of my efforts on behalf of the company, I have acted honourably, legally and with the knowledge and approval of the appropriate executives inside the company".

As chairman of Nissan, Renault SA and Mitsubishi Motors Corp, the globe-trotting Ghosn had access to a string of residences around the world, including additional homes in Beirut and Rio de Janeiro. Ghosn was the overlord of an alliance that included Nissan Motor, Mitsubishi Motors and France's Renault, until his surprise November arrest and removal as chairman of both Japanese auto makers sent shock waves through the industry. Saikawa has not been accused of any crime. "Nissan does not in any way tolerate such misconduct and calls for strict penalties", it said.

The company says it will abide by Europe's stronger privacy rules, which took effect in May, regardless of where a customer lives. Amazon-owned Ring is currently on the rocks right now as rumors began airing about employees having access over footages.

Ghosn has denied the allegations, declaring at his first appearance at a court proceeding Tuesday that he had been "wrongly accused and unfairly detained based on meritless and unsubstantiated accusations".

According to Ghosn's lawyer, the high fever the chairman ran on the night of January 9 has fallen. After that, prosecutors are entitled to request one-month extensions.

"We believe that there was enough to charge and go to trial", he said of Ghosn's case, "and he will be guilty".

December 25, 2018 - Kelly finally released after being granted bail. His lawyer, Yoichi Kitamura, said he had rented an apartment on his client's behalf. The special investigative unit is now waiting for replies to requests for cooperation made to foreign authorities, but a top official in the prosecutors' office disclosed, "Just how much evidence we will be able to gather is unknown". "We are fearful and very anxious his recovery will be complicated while he continues to endure such harsh conditions and unfair treatment", she said. His temperature had returned to normal by Friday, Otsuru's office said.

"I am pleading with the Japanese authorities to provide us with any information at all about my husband's health". "We are fearful and very anxious his recovery will be complicated while he continues to endure such harsh conditions and unfair treatment". On Friday, prosecutors added charges that the two also understated Ghosn's compensation by more than half between April 2015 and March 2018. But there are still suspicions that Ghosn used company funds for other personal uses, and eyes are now trained on the Tokyo District Court, which is set to rule on his release from his long period of detention. They say he reported compensation of 7.9 billion yen, or $73.2 million, compared with actual compensation of 17 billion yen, or $156.9 million.
