Ghosn vows to cooperate with Lebanese authorities after travel ban

Ghosn vows to cooperate with Lebanese authorities after travel ban”

Tokyo prosecutors suspect Carole Ghosn of having lied to the Japanese investigators in April as they probed her husband on financial misconduct charges.

Nissan's former chairman Carlos Ghosn has vowed to cooperate with Lebanese officials.

Ghosn, 65, managed to flee Japan to Lebanon last month as he was awaiting trial on charges of under-reporting earnings, breach of trust and misappropriation of company funds, all of which he denies.

The decision by Judge Ghassan Ouiedat also requires Ghosn to keep authorities informed of his place of residence.

One particularly interesting thing Ghosn said during his press conference was that he wants to find a country where he can be tried fairly and have his name cleared.

The prosecutors' special investigation squad said Carole met with the acquaintance, who was an executive of the Omani distributor and was involved in sending money to the Lebanese firm, Good Faith Investments, and they also exchanged many messages after her husband was arrested on November 19, 2018.

"A system that violates the most basic principles of humanity". Japan's courts have a 99.4 per cent conviction rate and Ghosn was resigned to the fact that if he didn't flee, he would likely be convicted and die in Japan.

One of those named by was Hiroto Saikawa - who succeeded Ghosn as Nissan CEO.

Former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn vowed on Thursday to cooperate "fully" with the Lebanese judiciary system, the LBCI TV channel reported. "And this time I feel I have been greatly betrayed by him for the second time".

"Remarks by Japanese justice minister about me are ridiculous", he said, adding that there are a lot of victims in Japanese prisons.
