I hope he recovers every cent he spent and wins suits against all of their partners that allowed this craziness to happen since he hasn't been charged. It's been too long for them not to have done anything to prove their claims. Half of 2019 is already gone.

Yeah....Japan is not big on large paydays. Especially, if the verdict makes Japan look bad. I would say first avoid jail because they may try to put leverage on his criminal case to make him give up on this case.

He has better chance pursuing his case outside of Japan if it is feasible.

Oops! I thought it was in a Japanese court but I reread and noticed the Dutch court. Yes, then go for it!

Who knows Ghosn could also use it to pressure Nissan on his criminal if he can bring some damaging evidence to light about Nissan and Mitsubishi in the process. It may also help to change the public opinion in Japan about Ghosn more to the positive.

This is getting interesting!

Then NMBV will sue Ghosn, then Kelly will sue Ghosn, then Ghosn will sue the Japanese Gov. Then the French will step in and sue the media, then Ghosn's wife will sue Nissan and so it goes. Just bring the case to trial

The 65-year-old Ghosn was arrested in Japan in November as he stepped off his private jet at Tokyo airport.

It appears that this is not true at all. Ghosn's wife gave an interview to French media last month (which was never reported on Japanese media of any sort) and she revealed a truly disturbing fact to say the least. She said that the arrest in the jet was completely fabricated by the prosecutors. Her husband told her that he was not in the plane where he got arrested but he actually reached the immigration area at the airport where he was told that there was an issue with his passport and visa. Then he was taken to a room where a prosecutor was waiting and who told him that he will be arrested without saying any reason for it.

So to make the arrest appear more dramatic, the prosecutors organized afterwards a fabricated arrest in the plane, which was empty, and asked the media to film the deception. So what've got here? Well prosecutors fabricating an arrest with the help of the media. In other words, we've got processors who are supposedly searching for truth and represent justice, fabricating facts in order to serve their narrative and interests. If Ghosn's wife allegations are true, and that would explain why we never saw any image of Ghosh getting out of the plane, this would just prove even more that Japan is ruled by a mafia club (with the media being controlled by it). Moreover it will seriously alter the credibility of the charges that those so-called prosecutors have against Ghosn.

daito_haku - that’s a very interesting story, but I don’t think it’ll make any real difference exactly where he was arrested. It will still come down to what evidence actually exists.

A desperate effort by a desperate man.

He is screwed, the Japanese Injustice system has its agenda and facts don't count. They had nothing but were forced to arrest by a company? A company that's how pathetic the law is, now double down to save face. He will never win, Japan law would rather smash it's self into a ship (usually into the sea) before having to deal with facts.

Why is this in the business section and not in the crime one?

Poor guy, he took advantage of his position and now will be wrangled up in litigation and prison for his remaining years when most men enjoy life and grandkids... Beware of greed...

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Haha - nice. Just when we had almost forgotten about him, he pops up again. I am sure there would be something in the contracts about termination due to misconduct

Go, Go Gohn! (...sorry!....)

It's good business for lawyers.

Seems that many people here didn't read the article properly. He is doing this in a Dutch court - a place where a fair trial is FAR more likely to take place and in a far less corrupt court than any court in Japan.

It's a great move as a win there would set a nice international precedent ahead of proceedings in Japan.

Try, "going... going... Gohn"

Back to class, rookie.

Ghosn is scumbag, so glad he got arrested in Japan were he won't get to use his privilege to get away...

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Well done Ghosn.

He should know he is lucky he's not getting sued by the companies for all the money he swindled!

What damaging evidence about Nissan and Mitsubishi?? HE was the one running the companies! If there were anything damaging that the companies did, HE did them.
