The Supreme Court of Japan on Monday (April 15th) rejected the appeal filed by Carlos Ghosn against the extension of his detention. Suspected of financial malfeasance, the former boss of Nissan was arrested again on April 4, less than a month after his release on bail. Carlos Ghosn was first detained until April 14, which was extended until April 22, to allow the prosecutor to prosecute.

In a statement prepared before the interpellation and published by Japanese media, Mr. Ghosn told himself once again 'Innocent', castigating an arrest "Revolting and arbitrary". He also denounced, in an interview with the French channels TF1 and LCI, the "Lies" and "Systematic demolition" he claims to be a victim since his first arrest, "From people inside Nissan". His lawyer promised to use every possible remedy to obtain his release.

Threat of a fourth indictment

Carlos Ghosn was arrested for the first time on November 19, 2018 for having reduced his tax returns to the Japanese financial authorities between 2010 and 2015. It was a second time on December 10 for similar facts between 2015 and 2018, then a third on 21 December for aggravated breach of trust. The prosecution has put him on examination for all of these charges. After 108 days in custody and pre-trial detention, he was released on bail of 1 billion yen (7.9 million euros), pending a trial should not be held for several months.

Ghosn is now under threat of a fourth indictment. The prosecution suspects him this time of having transferred funds from Nissan to a company "De facto controlled by him", via a distributor of Nissan vehicles abroad, surely in the Sultanate of Oman, according to a source close to the record. Of the $ 15 million between the end of 2015 and mid-2018, $ 5 million was reportedly misappropriated, the prosecutor's office said in a statement. "The suspect betrayed his function [de patron de Nissan] for personal benefit, he added.
