In Tokyo, the prosecutor’s office received an arrest warrant for former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn. This was reported by Kyodo news agency. According to them, this time the top manager was accused of violating the law on entry and exit from the country.
An arrest warrant has also been issued for Americans Michael Taylor and George Zayek. Presumably, they helped organize the escape of the top manager. According to TASS, they may be charged with harboring a criminal. According to unofficial data, Taylor previously served in the US special forces. After that, he created a company that specialized in security issues.
Earlier, the Japanese authorities sent a request to Interpol with a request for an arrest warrant for the wife of ex-head of Nissan Carlos Gon. Thus, Tokyo prosecutors suspect Carol Ghosn of attempting to destroy evidence related to her husband’s fraud case. Prior to this, the Tokyo prosecutor’s office issued a warrant for her arrest on suspicion of giving false evidence in April 2019.
Currently, Ghosn continues to be in Lebanon. This country and Japan do not have an extradition agreement. At a press conference, Ghosn openly accused Nissan’s leadership that the case against him was fabricated with the help of the Japanese government. He called everything that happened political persecution and a gross violation of human rights.
