Nissan ex-chair Ghosn's wife fears his trial may be unfair

April 17, 2019 - 7:01 AM

TOKYO - The wife of Carlos Ghosn, the former chairman of Nissan and Renault, says she is worried whether her husband, detained in Japan on financial misconduct allegations, will get a fair trial.

In a telephone interview Wednesday from New York, Carole Ghosn expressed outrage over the Japanese justice system that has dragged her husband back into custody after he was released on bail.

Ghosn said 20 prosecutors came into their Tokyo apartment without any explanation when she was in her pyjamas, and seized her cellphone, passport and trial documents defence lawyers were preparing.

Carlos Ghosn, who led Nissan Motor Co. for 20 years, was arrested in November and released on bail last month, but was arrested again on April 4. He says he is innocent.
