The trial of Nissan Motor’s former executive Greg Kelly, who is charged with conspiring to under-report the earnings of its former chairman Carlos Ghosn, has been set to start on September 15, public broadcaster NHK said on Thursday.

Former Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa will be one of those who will appear at the hearing at the Tokyo District Court in September, NHK stated. Kelly rejects wrongdoing.

The trial was originally expected to start in April but was postponed partly due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, according to NHK.

Kelly, Nissan’s ex-representative director, has been alleged of helping Ghosn hide around 9 billion yen (65.8 million pounds) in compensation.

Neither the court nor the office of Kelly’s lawyer has commented on this report yet.

Ghosn fled to Lebanon, his childhood home, in December 2019 after being charged with financial wrongdoing, including understating his compensation in Nissan’s financial statements. Ghosn has denied any wrongdoing.
