A Tokyo prosecutor stated Friday he find the bail conditions imposed on Carlos Ghosn, the former boss of Nissan Motor and Renault, would be insufficient to avoid tampering of evidence.

Shin Kukimoto, deputy public prosecutor at the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office, was discussing with reporters on Thursday, a day after Ghosn was released on 1 billion yen ($9 million) bail from the Tokyo jail after spending over 100 days there in a small cell with no heating.

Ghosn is charged with financial misconduct and can face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years. He has agreed to strict bail conditions and given assurances he will stay in Tokyo, surrender his passport to his lawyer and submit to extensive surveillance.

Kukimoto did not discuss specific bail conditions.
