Tokyo court declines Ghosn appeal against 10-day detention

Carlos Ghosn Renault-Nissan

The Tokyo District Court on Friday said it had declined a appeal by Carlos Ghosn’s lawyers against the arrest of the ousted Nissan Motor chairman for 10 days to ask him regarding their recent accusations of financial misconduct.

Ghosn’s second detention comes after Japanese prosecutors on Thursday arrested him on suspicion that he had attempted to enrich himself at Nissan’s expense, in another dramatic twist to the dramatic fall of the executive.

The recent charge against Ghosn marks the fourth arrest by prosecutors on financial misbehavior charges and comes after Ghosn was released on bail in early March after three months in custody.
