The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance may cease to exist. As reported by Financial TImes, citing its own sources in the automotive industry, after the ex-head of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, Carlos Gon, escaped from house arrest in Japan, Nissan management accelerated the development of a secret plan to leave the alliance. According to insider information, we are talking about a complete cessation of cooperation in all sectors, including engineering. The leadership of the Japanese concern believes that cooperation with Renault impedes the development of the brand, and the policy of the French group is called “toxic.”
Ex-head of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Carlos Ghosn is accused of financial fraud and the use of company funds for personal purposes. The initiator of the Gon trial was Nissan management. Until recently, he was under house arrest in Japan, and law enforcement officials constantly monitored his house. But this did not stop Ghon from secretly leaving the country and flying through Istanbul to Beirut.
At a press conference held a few days after the escape, Ghosn said that he “escaped not from justice, but from injustice and political persecution.” At the same time, he called Japanese justice indifferent to truth and justice.
