Nissan Boss Ghosn's Japan Lawyer Steps Down After His Flight to Lebanon

Ghosn fled clandestinely from Japan to Lebanon at the end of December while on bail over alleged financial misconduct charges, the trial for which was expected in April.

The report came after the former boss fled Japan to Lebanon while on bail late last month.

Hironaka said in a statement that the entire team working on the case at his office will quit but did not outline reasons.

The move left the Japanese side of the Renault-Nissan alliance fearing that a national champion was falling under the control of the French government, sources have said. Interpol has made a requested notification, but his extradition from Lebanon is unlikely.

A Turkish business executive, who has been arrested, helped Ghosn out of the case and into a waiting auto that took them to a plane, the report said.

Nissan's own probe, meanwhile, has found that Zi-A Capital B.V., its wholly owned subsidiary in the Netherlands, purchased residences in Rio de Janeiro and Beirut for Ghosn and covered renovation costs, with outlays totaling over $22 million.

Agriculture Bill "will strengthen farm gate"
The Bill will also legally require any future United Kingdom government to report regularly on food security to Parliament. The funding available for Direct Payments for 2020 will be the same as for 2019.

Nissan also said that Ghosn obtained compensation from a venture company in the Netherlands set up Mitsubishi Motors Corp., a smaller Japanese automaker with which Nissan set up an alliance under Ghosn. Japanese prosecutors have continued to push the case domestically, issuing an arrest warrant for Ghosn's wife Carole earlier this month.

"None of these officers are involved in daily operations or the exercise of business judgment or attend management meetings", Nissan said in its Improvement Measures Status Report.

Legal cases are continuing against Nissan and Ghosn's right-hand man Greg Kelly, who faces related financial misconduct charges.

Nissan said the three unnamed companies hold department heads or higher positions and are now in positions that have a strong impact on corporate governance.

When news broke that Ghosn had fled at the end of a year ago, Hironaka told reporters that the news came "out of the blue".

According to the TSE, the company has reported violations of stock exchange rules regarding information that could affect investor decisions. Ltd, Carlos Ghosn, speaks to media representatives in Tokyo on March 12, 2019.
