Nissan says it has noted U.S. arrests in Carlos Ghosn case

Carlos Ghosn Renault-Nissan

Nissan Motor said on Thursday it still reserves the right to take more legal measures in the case involving its former Chairman Carlos Ghosn, after the United States officials arrested two men on charges they allowed his escape from Japan.

“Nissan notes the extradition proceedings in the US. As previously announced, Nissan finds the former chairman’s flight from justice extremely regrettable,” the automaker said in an emailed statement according to Reuters.

“While not a party to these extradition proceedings, Nissan continues to reserve the right to take further legal measures as appropriate.”

Ghosn in 2019 escaped to Lebanon from Japan in order to evade trial in Japan over alleged financial wrongdoing. Ghosn has denied all charges.
