Carlos Ghosn has reportedly travelled to Lebanon after departing from Japan
The Financial Times newspaper quotes an associate of Carlos Ghosn’s saying the former Nissan’s chairman landed in Beirut, Lebanon on Sunday.
Official sources have yet to confirm this information.
Ghosn was arrested over allegations of financial misconduct in 2018 and faces several charges. Ghosn has rejected any wrongdoing.
It is not clear how Ghosn was able to leave Japan where he was on bail.
Whether he had a deal with prosecutors or fled is yet to be known. Ghosn holds both French and Lebanese passports.
French newspaper Les Echos reports that he reportedly traveled in a private jet that flew to Lebanon from Turkey – although this information is also not confirmed yet.
Ghosn’s lawyers have alleged the Japanese government of conspiring against him, referring the case of the prosecution to have been “politically motivated”.
