This is the treatment he gets for saving their companies, WSJ wrote a detailed comprehensive report on it:

Ha, good luck, the multilayered regulations are used this way, but due to the multilayered system can be used that way. Prosecutors are seemingly at a loss. No confession so turn to the left exit. I am very looking forward to his next book detailing his experience with the Japanese injustice system. I might be wrong but isn't there a meeting of global justice ministers scheduled for February next year in Japan? I'm looking forward to the host nation declaration of "we are not a medieval society" a hearty laughing response. Meanwhile a uncharged man sits in a small box, for the forceable future.

Jezus christ. Since 2008. Greed, greed, greed and more greed.

Nissan is owned by the Japanese government. They are the majority shareholder and might possibly begin pay caps for other companies of which they are the majority shareholder. Japanese companies wont be able to attract top foreign talent with pay caps.

Nissan has dug it's own grave, its evidence is an unsigned document? Seriously? As much as I like the company I really hate how they did this to someone that saved them.

Unsigned (or without hanko) paper is not a document. Simple as that. To: Insane Wayne -- Nissan is not owned by any governent, also Renault.

Three billion yen?

Nobody needs that much money!

Has Nissan HQ actually been raided yet?

How can the company Nissan not be charged together with the top executives?

Yep! I have always suspected Ghosn was only one of many skimming funds from Nissan

This is not a head-scratcher at all. The police were waiting or him at the airport and had permission to go onto the tarmac and board his plane. You can't just causally stroll down to the airport and do this. It was well-planned. They had "evidence."

This whole plan was based on jealousy, from the Number Two down. They could have come up with a better plan, considering that if Ghosn did not take over when he did, the company would be in the history books. As far as responsibility...

If Nissan was really fooled, and Ghosn truly cheated Nissan out of that much money without them knowing about it for so many years, the remaining employees at Nissan who were supposed to be watching for fraud and accepting irregularities are too stupid to run the company by themselves. Let them go under after they are also arrested.

If Nissan was complicit in misstating the amount of Ghosn's salary, they are also tainted, and the authorities should start arresting everyone who had anything to do with the fraud. In the case too, the company is too stupid to function. Nissan can pay Renault back all of the profits it has been making since Ghosn has been leading the firm, with interest, and then try to make it own their own. They can ask Mitsubishi Motors for some advice. Two peas in a pod.

That much money is just too difficult to hide or "miss" by the auditors. The auditing company should have held the reports back (like they did in the case of Toshiba), until all (or most) of the money had been accounted for.

Ghosn was so powerful that the Japanese could not object him.  If they did, they'd have fired.  In fact many Japanese have left since France tried M&A.  French executives were treating Nissan as their colony.

Nissan must wake-up and show all top people salaries , at least the top 10 executives. Such big movement Carlos, did by himself ???.Powerful in Japan ,when one do not read & write Japanese ???.Stop guchi, lets get down to the Japanese system. There are Japanese advisers, accounting dept, a whole bunch of executives. Who is Nissan current president ???.Do U all want to know , what he is doing next ???.He is fighting to be chairman as well. Carlos is so powerful that discuss with him or arguing with him will risk their necks ???. Pls stop treating good Japanese as fools. We do have morals & we know, how the Japanese system works.

STOP using all kind of excuses. Just admit, Nissan closed it's eyes for too long until they feel it is time, to use

Carlos, when they think they can.I am very sorry for all good share-holders of Nissan & Japan inc. In fact, I am ashamed of Nissan and it's new executives at this moment. Best way, stop buying anything Nissan.

Only ever said by someone who never has anything and begrudges those that do!

Perhaps Nissan, and Japanese companies generally, will consider carefully the possible consequences of appointing to such positions people from cultures where corruption is a way of life.

Don't think that gnat-car is what Ghosn is driven around in.

Sources close to the matter said Wednesday

some experts say.

Aubrey Harwell, a lawyer in Tennessee, told Kyodo News 

The Japanese commentators are hiding behind anonymity. The foreigners are standing up and backing up their comments by identifying themselves. Decide for yourself who is being sincere in this affair.

With the history of corporate corperate corruption in Japan, the consequence of your suggestion would be to fire all corporate Japanese executives.

Cool...no more Japanese CEO,s at J companies then...is what you are effectively saying since corruption at highest levels is standard modus operandi here . You dont live here by the sound of it do you?

You don't follow the Japanese media all that much (if at all), do you sir...

Are you basing your opinion off some books about samurai or something?

Foreign talents? you mean those CEOs and shareholders whose incomes are astronomically disproportionate to their actual capability. They aren't 'talents', they are today's feudal lords.

The cap is here to prevent them from entering Japan, thankfully.

Because "This is Japan".
