US citizen Carole Ghosn, published a letter of opinion in the Washington Post on April 17, to the President of the United States to help her husband out of prison. "I hope and pray that our president will urge Abe to allow my husband to get bail so that he can prepare for the trial," referring to the arrival of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the White House.
Arrested again on April 4, Carlos Ghosn "is innocent of everything" according to her. She insists on the treatment of the police that was reserved for them on the day of this arrest: "The intention of the raid before dawn was clear: it was a deliberate and inhuman attempt to humiliate us, to invade our privacy and to violate our most basic dignities as human beings. "
Before continuing with the detention conditions of her husband, whom she says is "horrified": "The prosecutors placed him in solitary confinement, with the lights on 24 hours a day", "they interrogate him for hours – and at any time of day and night – without access to his lawyers. "
And denounce "a treatment, known as" hostage justice "that" aims to break the spirit and compel confessions. "
Carole Ghosn had launched a first call on RTL on April 7, sent to Emmanuel Macron to get her husband out of prison. It is the entourage of the President of the Republic who responded by simply recalling basic principles: Carlos Ghosn, a Brazilian and Franco-Lebanese, is a litigant like the others and the government does not have to to decide on these elements by virtue of the separation of powers. Nevertheless, Bruno Le Maire had confirmed that Carlos Ghosn enjoyed the consular protection of France and the presumption of innocence.
The former boss of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Motors alliance was suspected of financial misconduct and was arrested last November. He had spent 108 days in a detention center in Tokyo before being released on bail. He had been arrested again on April 4 for a new charge of breach of trust.
