Gohara emphasized that this is only a prediction of Carlos Ghosn, and he did not give any evidence of his theory. At the same time, at the beginning of 2020, the ex-head of Renault-Nissan announced that Nissan’s capitalization had declined by more than $ 10 billion after its arrest in the spring of 2018, and added that the Japanese company had spent $ 200 million on the investigation of its fraud. “Nissan wanted to reduce its influence from Renault, and the Japanese side decided that the only way to do this would be to get rid of me.” – Ghosn told reporters during a press conference in Beirut on January 8.
At the end of December 2019, Carlos Ghosn escaped from house arrest and flew from Tokyo, first to Istanbul, and then to Beirut. In Japan, he was threatened with up to 10 years in prison for financial fraud, but he denies all the charges.
Ghosn linked his arrest and prosecution to “revenge on a handful of unscrupulous people at Nissan.” He also accused the judicial system of Japan of violating his rights. “I did not run away from justice, I ran away from injustice and political persecution. I simply had no other choice, because I was hostage to an inhuman and anachronistic legal system, indifferent to truth and justice, ” – he stated earlier.
