Yikes, Lebanon right now is in chaos, people are angry, fed up with their government right now. Being right there where Lebanese political and economic elites is hated due to corruption certainly won't help him and his family right now.

"Bwhahaha, have fun being stuck there for the rest of your life"

If one has to be stuck somewhere the Beirut region is one of the better places in the world to be stuck in. Fabulous climate, beaches, sea breezes, mountains and skiing nearby and a wealthy cosmopolitan city. Plus his family is there and he apparently has business interests in Beirut.

I have to admit I was a curious how he fared. Of course I am mainly concerned about the thousands who were affected by this. 5km away really puts things in perspective. I can think of places in Tokyo that are 5km away and can't imagine sustaining damage to my home from an explosion equally as big from that far away. I hope there isn't a similar stash of ammonium nitrate anywhere in Japan.

I can just see the TV movie now. Criminal steals a lot of moolah from Nissan in Japan, escapes justice and takes refuge in another nation only to get his asylum shelter damaged by a bad incident like this.

Karma sucks, doesn't it?

Where is it written that Nissan legally owns the property?

On the property title and other documents. Last January, Ghosn during his pressconf wanted to demonstrate that Nissan's board knew the company was lending to the CEO a house in Beyrouth and a flat in Rio de Janeiro to allow him to do his job...so he's himself showed the documents on the screen as he was talking. You believe him or not ?

"Where is it written that Nissan legally owns the property?

or is that just the line the Tokyo prosecutors want folks to parrot?'

According to the charges filed against Mr. Ghosn, the $15 million mansion in Beirut was paid for by a shell company based in the Netherlands called Zi-A Capital BV. The shell company was funded by the Nissan Board of Directors to be used to make investments at the behest of Greg Kelly. Whether that is all true or not remains to be proven but those are the allegations.

"Beirut After being rocked by a huge explosion, which killed more than 100 people and injured thousands and caused widespread destruction in the city. Japantoday found nothing more significant in this disaster than the damage to Carlos Ghosn's house."

What? JT has two other lengthy articles about the explosion.

There's information in this article about Ghosn skipping bail than about the blast. Do they even know who or what caused it?

That’s Nissan’s house, illegaly occupied by a fugitive

Glad to hear one of my heroes is safe, if not shaken.

RIP to the too many victims...

JT, what about the houses of the 2 millions law-abiding inhabitants of Beyrouth area ? Are the Ghosns going to donate money or go help with rebuilding ?

Carole Nahas told O Estado de S Paulo that her family is safe but the house,

Carlos Ghosn's house

Nissan's property. In such a case, is it the squatters that pay for reparations ?

The cost of being a fugitive of the law, no sympathy here

-12 ( +23 / -35 )

Well, I guess that shows the power of the blast. There’ll surely be a huge demand for building workers now, so I guess those with the money will get preference.
