A month after a first charge of understating remuneration between 2010 and 2014, on 11 January 2019, the end date of his fourth stay in police custody, Carlos Ghosn is charged on two further counts.
The first count: understating remuneration from 2015 to 2018.
The second count: aggravated breach of trust (Saudi Arabia).
The news does not come so much from the judge or Tokyo’s District Court, since these decisions were expected, but from Nissan.
Indeed, in a news release, Nissan announces that it is filling a criminal complaint, in respect of the second count. Yet another step to put the former company head under pressure. In the meantime, prosecutors do not bring further charges on that day, 11 January 2019, when Carlos Ghosn’s fourth stay in police custody ends. A release on bail seems possible. This is what Mr Ghosn’s lawyers request.
