Former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn should stand trial in Japan, a Japanese government minister informed the Lebanese government during a visit to Beirut on Monday, adding that Beirut had agreed to reach to a decision but without saying how.

“We believe it is obvious and natural for Ghosn to stand trial in Japan and this view has been communicated to Lebanese government,” stated Hiroyuki Yoshiie, deputy justice minister, during a Beirut news conference.

“And we agreed to cooperate on that,” he added, refusing to provide details of how Lebanon had agreed to cooperate.

Ghosn skipped bail in Tokyo in December 2019 and fled to Lebanon.
