Looks like the king has fled for Middle East.  How in the HELL  you get out of Japan in 2019 to Lebanon without a frickin' passport and being on EVERY worldwide criminal watch list is something I'd like to know how to do.  You know....just in case.

He made the modern GT-R. He said all it "had to have" was round tail lights. How could Nissan not revere him?

I think it was you who intimated it might be internal Japanese feudal conflicts.  Or maybe NickTO.  I can't remember.  But something shady if I recall.

I’m pleased he made it out. The accusations against him seem too “convenient”. Enjoying some extra fat on the company dime is just part of being a CEO at a company of this magnitude.

+1 and the legal system seems somewhat sketchy - no contact with family. Seemed super convenient to push a plea. Trial will not be until 2021... that’s a long time no family contact.

Guaranteed Boards involved, just like the VW fiasco.

BMW is next with their sales and demos/loaner vehicles.

It is possible that he used Mr. Bean's passport instead.

"...Surveillance video taken outside of Ghosn's Tokyo home shows the former chairman leaving the house around noon, shortly before fleeing, NHK reported on Friday.

 

Investigators said "the camera did not capture any other suspicious persons entering or leaving the home around the time Ghosn came out," according to the Japanese news outlet.

 

The new footage appears to debunk theories that Ghosn had out-foxed law enforcement by climbing into a large box for musical instruments after a band had played at the family home..."

Lol cameras everywhere these days - if they don’t show videos they don’t exist, he probably just walked out.

Probably just got fed up, said F$&@ it and walked out and was like well sh’iiit I should have done that months ago.

Every international business colleague of mine has multiple passports. The ones you use when you go to the Middle East and the ones you use everywhere else. Lol.

Remember a story a Spaniard told me who traveled to Iran and Libya all the time and was like one time he almost used the passport with Israel stamps. Said that wouldn’t have ended well hahha.

The more I read about this.  The more I’m convinced,the Japanese were not happy with a possible merger,and then bring in the Re-arrestof him when he was gonna have a press conference about his case. Also why wouldn’t sombody be able to communicate with your wife.

 

In Light of our own Political problems.………These sound like Trumped up Charges to me.

In Japan, Trump would have been arrested and imprisoned for his land deals in the 80's alone.  Very very very intolerant legal culture there.
