Nissan cancels lease on Ghosn's Tokyo apartment

Ghosn suffers high fever, interrogation suspended

Two people familiar with the matter said he was not sufficiently cooperating with Nissan's probe against Ghosn.

But the board statement added that the audit would continue, with previous years scrutinised as it progresses. Nissan Chief Executive Hiroto Saikawa has denounced Ghosn, accusing him of using the company's money and assets for personal gain.

His defense team said he could remain in detention for at least another six months as a court rarely grants bail before a trial begins and because Ghosn denies the allegations completely.

The new charges will likely keep Mr Ghosn in prison until his first trial, according to his lawyers.

Even if bail were granted, Ghosn would not likely be released until Tuesday given that Monday is public holiday in Japan.

Munoz, a native of Spain, is believed to have not been back to Japan since leaving the country in late November, shortly after Ghosn's arrest.

Ghosn has said he is innocent of all the allegations against him. Nissan has dismissed Kelly from his role as a representative director.

He was served a third arrest warrant on December 21 for allegedly shifting a currency swap contract with losses worth ¥1.85 billion to Nissan in 2008 and causing damage to the company by having it pay $14.7 million to a Saudi businessman, who guaranteed credit for Ghosn, in the following years.

French daily Le Figaro reported on Thursday that the board meeting was one of several informal gatherings held regularly since Ghosn's arrest to discuss developments in the case.

He was already facing a first charge for allegedly under-reporting his compensation over five years to the tune of five billion yen (R644m) in official documents to shareholders.

Nissan last weekend put two executives close to Ghosn on leave of absence, suggesting that the internal investigation into the alleged misconduct could be spreading.

Carlos Ghosn was hit with a third set of charges on Friday.

The boards of Nissan and its French 43.4% owner, Renault, met yesterday for an update on the Ghosn investigations.

"The leader of a French company should pay his taxes in France", President Emmanuel Macron said in a speech last month. Chairman Carlos Ghosn has had a high fever since Wednesday evening and his interrogation has been suspended as a doctor said he needs rest, one of his lawyers said Thursday. He appeared in public for the first time on January 8 looking gray and gaunt, and was led into a court room handcuffed and with a rope tied around his waist. All told, Ghosn said he always acted with integrity and had never been accused of any wrongdoing in his professional career.

"I have been wrongly accused and unfairly detained based on meritless and unsubstantiated accusations", the once-revered vehicle titan told the court.

The French government has stood by Ghosn so far, saying he must benefit from the presumption of innocence.
