Formal Charges For Ghosn, Nissan


Reuters reports Tokyo prosecutors indicted ousted Nissan Motor chairman Carlos Ghosn for under-reporting his income and also officially charged the automaker. This makes Nissan culpable for the financial misconduct scandal that has shocked the industry. Ghosn was arrested on Nov. 19 on suspicion of conspiring to understate his compensation by about half of the actual $88 million over five years from 2010. He has been held in a Tokyo jail since then for questioning, but had not been officially charged until now.

  • Ghosn' And Nissan Formally Indicted In Japan

    Carlos Ghosn and Nissan were indicted in Japan on Monday for understating Ghosn's income by $43 million. Automotive News reports Former Nissan representative director Greg Kelly was also indicted, three weeks after he and Ghosn were arrested in Japan and accused of financial crimes. Under the Japanese system, indictment allows prosecutors to lay formal charges. While a detainee may be able to apply for bail, Ghosn, who was ousted as Nissan's chairman shortly after his Nov. 19 arrest, will likely remain behind bars because he was also re-arrested on new allegations of understating income that pertain to a different time period.
