B,b,but he saved Nissan and is cute and is innocent! Yeah right, Ghosn is done. His crimes will thankfully be repaid in full. Not even his French allies are making silly excuses for him these days

. It noted questionable expenses for Ghosn's air travel, personal spending and donations to nonprofit organizations.

so air travel? He was required to be in several different countries, perhaps a boat might have been more appropriate. Personal spending? Well in the grand scheme of things might be over the top but not jail worthy. Donations they didn't benifit him. And the money wasn't missed untill now. So is any of this worth jail?

Right, and since it is far, far, easier to convict him in the court of public opinion/media, and find him guilty without going through the nasty business of a trial, let's all just forget that there is a reason we still have a justice system anyway.

Let's get away with jails, detention centers, and any other forms of legal rights, and let the press and media be the judge and jury.

Feel free to lynch him now, but just remember this much, you had better walk a straight line for the rest of YOUR life, because the moment anyone accuses you of anything, and guilty or not, you must accept the same verdict, otherwise you are just being a hypocrite! Because it is far too easy to believe that he is guilty than to give him the benefit of a trial!

What Yubaru and Cricky said. A sham from beginning to end.

Let's take that magnifying glass to any CEO of a Japanese company and I'm sure you'll find much worse. Even the president of the small firm I used to work at was rumored to use company funds for his young lover's apartment and monthly stipend.

Let's not forget that Ghosn hasn't been convicted of anything. He has only been accused with speculations and exaggerated propaganda from the backstabbing underhanded snakes in Nissan management who were too gutless to handle this case internally, as it should have been. Let's leave the hanging until after judgement day, shall we?

So, now they cannot find any real crimes in Japan with Carlos that they have to attack him in the Netherlands ???. My advice to Nissan & all the Japanese people at Nissan , pls take care of Nissan Japan before It goes bankrupt again. Nissan & its employees have no time for back-stabbing.

The noose tightens around Ghosn's neck.

"He has only been accused with speculations and exaggerated propaganda from the backstabbing underhanded snakes in Nissan"

LOL LOL Maybe you should read:

"French carmaker Renault is to bring a case against former chief executive Carlos Ghosn after identifying 11 million euros of questionable expenses,"

and

"The (French) state will hand over all the elements to the judicial authorities and there will be a complaint," Le Maire told BFM TV in an interview.

Do you see the word Japan or Japanese? I see the word French. In fact I see it twice.

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

Yeah, it's a huge conspiracy to put an old rich guy in jail. Or maybe, just maybe, he actually did what they said. It's not just Japan after him anymore. How about we wait for the trial.

Lol! Now that Saikawa is finished pulling the knives out of Ghosn's back it's time to let things go? What a joke!

It's not a sham.

Just because your beloved hearthstone of success for non-Japanese people in Japan turns out to very seemingly be a bad guy, doesn't make it a sham.

Really?? Then why not go to trial?? Why incarcerate him and attempt to force him to admit he's guilty?? PLEASE...

Ghosn got caught doing bad things with money that wasn't his to begin with.

So you are convicting him even before he goes to trial?? BS

There has to be consequences. However he got caught in the first place is irrelevant to the outcome of this case. The (very highly plausible) fact is that he DID get caught.

Did he? Where's the proof??

Funny how you say

THEN say

Uh, yeah, that's my whole point. Maybe it's a setup OR maybe he is guilty. So let's wait for the trial? Get it now?

No it isn't. you already have decided that he's guilty

Maybe it's a setup OR maybe he is guilty. So let's wait for the trial? Get it now?

You really don't get it do you? not at all. whether or not he's guilty isn't what we are protesting. Its the manner in which he was incarcerated- Japan's hostage justice system is what we are criticising.

Get it now?

Actually, you seem to be the one who ‘doesn’t get it’. I guess you missed the post I quoted that said ‘a sham from beginning to end’ which was who my comment was directed at. Nothing at all to do with ‘the manner he was incarcerated’.

IT IS a sham from beginning to end. You cannot divorce the way in which he was treated with the pending trial

Nothing at all to do with ‘the manner he was incarcerated’.

It has EVERYTHING to do with it

At the very least let us agree that the way he was treated so far is unacceptable, and that we cannot make ANY statements as to whether or not he is guilty. Fair enough?

Lavish lifestyle, meanwhile he sacks workers left right and centre. Do the crime, do the time.

We can agree that he is innocent until proven guilty, which is what I was saying from the beginning.
