Defense Team: Ghosn Was Arrested Illegally, Suffering From Kidney Failure


Carlos Ghosn’s “illegal” arrest has interrupted his care for chronic kidney failure, which the former Nissan Motor boss suffers from as a result of treatment for high cholesterol, his defense said in documents seen by Reuters on Thursday. Ghosn’s defense team allege the latest arrest was designed to interrupt the defense’s preparation and force a confession. Ghosn has high cholesterol and, as a result of treatment, suffers from chronic kidney failure and rhabdomyolysis, the defense said. The defense team said: Interrupting his treatment for the “convenience of prosecutors’ investigation” was “inhuman”.
