Tokyo prosecutors are shall indict former Nissan Motor boss Carlos Ghosn on an extra charge of aggravated breach of trust as early as Monday when his present detention period expires, public broadcaster NHK reported.
Ghosn was arrested for the fourth time this month on suspicion he attempted to enrich himself at the expense of Nissan, to the tune of $5 million. He is also awaiting trial on other charges of financial misbehavior and aggravated breach of trust.
Ghosn, who had been released on $9 million bail in early March after spending 108 days in jail, has rejected all accusations against him. His defense team has started a public battle against the prosecutors, calling the recent arrest “illegal” in documents read by Reuters.
