Carlos Ghosn to appear in public for first time since arrest

Ousted Nissan Boss Carlos Ghosn To Make First Public Appearance In 7 Weeks

Ousted Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn is set to appear in a Tokyo court on Tuesday. The reason behind the timing of Ghosn's request was not clear. Ghosn has already received an indictment for underreporting his income but denied the allegations, saying his remuneration had not been officially fixed and were therefore not subject to obligatory declaration.

Public broadcaster NHK reported that Ghosn, 64, meant to appear before the judge in the next hearing and will have the opportunity to state his opinion for the first time since his arrest.

Ghosn's arrest was followed by his removal from roles at Nissan and Mitsubishi.

Ghosn is spending the beginning of 2019 in detention after the court on New Year's Eve extended his detention through to January 11 on allegations of aggravated breach of trust.

He was given another arrest warrant on December 21, further extending his detention, on suspicion he transferred personal investment losses to the tune of 1.85 billion yen (17.12 million USA dollars) to Nissan in 2008.

They also allege he under-reported his salary to the tune of four billion yen over the next three fiscal years - apparently to avoid criticism that his pay was too high.

Ghosn's arrest strained Nissan's relations with its French strategic partner Renault, where he remains board chairman and CEO.

Visits from lawyers, family and friends are strictly controlled by prosecutors in Japan, making it hard for suspects to establish a defense or give their side of the story to the media. Nissan's board of directors dismissed Ghosn as chairman shortly following his arrest. Nissan expressed concerns at the time that Paris's move meant that the Japanese automaker had been placed under partial control of the French government.

In principle, a court session is held within five days of the submission of the request, and Ghosn would be allowed to appear in court to state his side of the case.
