Egor Matveyev, who teaches at the MIT Sloan School of Management, calls the Ghosn case “a clear example of corporate governance failure.”
Corporate governance? It's not the first time take look on Toshiba's and Olympus's case
So far Carlos Ghosn and his lawyer share his case to University of Tokyo professor an expert of corporate law, Wataru Tanaka about his case. He even said even if there is such punishment it should be fine not jail time.
The Financial Instruments and Exchange Act (金融商品取引法, Kin'yū shōhin torihiki-hō) is the applicable law. It is quite clear that Kelly, conspired with Ghosn to violate sections of the Act. Ghosn violated Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) [15 U.S.C. § 78j(b)] and SEC Rule 10b-5 [17 C.F.R. § 240.10b-5], and also aided and abetted Nissan’s violations of Section 10(b) and SEC Rule 10b-5. Kelly aided and abetted Ghosn’s and Nissan’s violations of the same.
Please check again how many people is being involved to make that happen, is not only Kelly. If you check Kelly's case carefully even by the time he being consulted, those plan already exist.
When Ghosn and Kelly need to settle with SEC, please check again when was it? It's time where they are in custody, with very limited access to document from their previous company.
structure payment after Ghosn’s retirement without disclosure in the periods when the compensation had been earned and fixed.
What they try to do and not being finalized and approved, is a way to pay post retirement scheme that exist and common in Japan. Even for Ghosn case that agreement will require him not to go to rival companies, using non-compete agreement.

If he thinks he is innocent, show the evidence, and fight with your energy. Why did he need to run away illegally in the first place while on bail ? Do as the Japanese do when in Japan.
Do as Japanese do? What Japanese do when being forced to make confession? Most of Japanese just confess to a crime that never happened.

Ghosn and Kelly agreed to pay the penalty before Ghosn was arrested. The settlement was only published on that date.
I'm just stating facts that were not part of the article and many people do not know about. If you don't like the facts, complain to... well, there is no one to complain to. Facts are simply facts.
Which fact? Inquiry for both Ghosn and his former company from SEC started in January 2019, nothing has been settled during that time
At that time Ghosn already spent his days inside solitary confinement in detention center, starting from November 19th, 2018

US Securities and Exchange Commission filed this in 2019
SEC decision was made on September 2019, where Ghosn during that time? He was in custody in Japan, still trying to fight his case with limited access to necessary documents. So it's not necessary he is guilty, he just couldn't prove he was innocent at that time.
If you check again Ghosn's case, all people that become witness they are more guilty than Greg Kelly that now is still fighting for his case.
People that was in that company now speaking about conflict of interest among people who reported Ghosn.
