Statement from Carlos Ghosn’s defense team about the postponement of hearings by French judges in Beyrouth :
“Due to the deterioration of the Covid-19 situation, a general lockdown has been decided in Lebanon. It comes into force on 14 January.
In this context, a ban on all travel has been ordered, as well as a closure of the borders and the closure of all activities, including judicial activities, with the exception of matters relating to releases from detention.
It was therefore decided by mutual agreement between the French and Lebanese magistrates and Carlos Ghosn’s lawyers to postpone the visit of the French magistrates to a later date, which has yet to be determined.”
