Carlos Ghosn Is Facing Fresh Charges
They’re driving this one home. Japanese prosecutors have leveled a new indictment against the former Nissan chairman, who’s already been charged with underreporting his pay by around $44 million over a five-year period that ended in early 2015. Now authorities say the 64-year-old continued the illicit practice through March 2018.
What’s in store for Ghosn? His lawyers are pushing for his release on bail, but prospects for the disgraced executive — once one of the auto world’s most powerful — don’t look good: Japan boasts a 99 percent conviction rate for criminal indictments.
