French President Emmanuel Macron stated on Sunday he has expressed his concerns to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about the prison conditions faced by former Renault boss Carlos Ghosn.
“I have considered that the detention was very long and the conditions of the detention harsh, I have said so to Prime Minister Abe on several occasions,” Macron informed reporters during a visit to Egypt.
The crisis surrounding Ghosn, however, did not harmed the balance of the automaking alliance between Renault and Nissan, he stated.
Ghosn resigned as Renault head previous week. He remains in detention after his arrest in Japan in November and indictment for financial misbehavior.
