The former head of the Renault-Nissan alliance, Carlos Ghosn, left Japan and moved to his historical homeland – to Lebanon
According to The New York Times, on December 31, Carlos Ghosn fled from Japan and took refuge in Lebanon, where he is considered to be some kind of national hero. Details of his escape were not disclosed. Lebanese newspaper Al-Joumhouriya claims that Ghosn flew to Beirut in a private plane from Turkey. According to the source of the publication, Gon and his wife Carolina are in their house with armed guards.
Gon is a Lebanese citizen and an ethnic Lebanese Christian. This Middle Eastern country does not have an extradition agreement with Japan. Thus, he is unlikely to be forced to return to Japan. He also has strong public support throughout the country. “Now I am in Lebanon and will no longer be held hostage to a falsified justice system in Japan, where discrimination is widespread, fundamental human rights are violated, and there is a blatant violation of Japan’s legal obligations under international law and treaties,” Mr. Ghosn said in a statement.
