It takes four years for Turkey to follow up this case?

Here today, Ghosn tomorrow.

The hair is thinning and graying on Ghosn’s head. Life in exile is apparently costing him his mental and physical health.

A lawsuit filed in a Lebanese court. What a joke!!

There is so much corruption in Lebanon that most countries would simply ignore any court order. Lebanon is ranked 150/180 in the Transparency Index.

In France, Ghosn is facing a number of legal challenges, including tax evasion and alleged money laundering, fraud and misuse of company assets.

Ghosn is clearly a criminal!

Stay in Lebanon, stay out of the news, no one is interested in you any more.

Even when a rich criminal escapes a corrupt and grossly unfair (so-called) justice system, I have to applaud.

I hope the Japanese prosecutors and other bigots in the system are still crying in their sake that he got away.

not sure that thining and greying hair is a measure of mental health, or physical for that matter..... wild guess, but it might just be because he's close to 70.

" The hair is thinning and graying on Ghosn’s head."

Time waits for no man, but perhaps he also gave up on using the black hair dye all the politicians and business types in Japan are so addicted to.

He had his chance to prove his innocence in a court of law but he chose to run away instead.

Sooner or later, thet criminal clown will fall..

No,he didn't.

Whether the guy committed those crimes in France or not, at least in Japan, he didn't stand a chance to defend himself. Just like Kelly.

What Japan did disgusting and nationalistic, since the Japanese people who were involved faced zero consequences.

Amazing. Some commenters here seem to believe in the Japanese justice system. Presumably they're the ones downvoting everything.

If he's so innocent then why is he still in Lebanon? And he conspired to be smuggled out of Japan too. He's a thief. No sympathy for this devil.

Superb. I can imagine the Japanese seething about it and that is hilarious.

Not really, my colleagues have nearly forgotten about the Nissan case. They do remember that Ghosn escaped and is wanted by Interpol. They also know that he is still stuck in Lebanon. Now, . . . . .that is hilarious!!

Lebanon has no extradition treaty with Japan and does not extradite its citizens. Ghosn has French, Brazilian and Lebanese citizenship.

Looks like Carlos Ghosn for good, man!

Don’t think he’s talking about your buddies at the town hall.

Right. The fact that he's pushing 70 years old has got nothing to do with it.

Exile? He's living in a country where he's a citizen.

Since when is that an "exile"?

He had absolutely no chance to prove his innocence here in Japan. If you live here, you should know that!!!

In the developed world, the way it works is that guilt needs to be proven, not innocence.

There is very, very good reason for the burden of proof leaning that way.

Proven in court, not through what to any other civilised country is torture.

Calling him a criminal is what got you the downvotes. Applauding him escaping a corrupt justice system had them thinking to upvote you but how dare you call a fellow foreigner a criminal lol

Japan has just Ghosn fishing but Carlos shook the hook.
