Ghosn would not get fair trial if tried with Nissan, says lawyer

Carlos Ghosn Renault-Nissan

Ousted Nissan Motor boss Carlos Ghosn would not get a fair trial by a Tokyo court if he were tried alongside his former employer Nissan,
Junichiro Hironaka, a lawyer for Ghosn, stated on Tuesday, adding the automaker was more like a prosecutor than a defendant in the case.

“No matter how you look at it, having Ghosn sit alongside Nissan at the trial would be peculiar, it would go against his right to a fair trial,” Hironaka said.

Previously on Tuesday, lawyers for Ghosn stated they asked a Tokyo court that he stand trial for supposed financial wrongdoing separately from Nissan because the company is working with prosecutors.
