Ex-Nissan boss escapes Japan without passport, reaches Lebanon

Jan 01, 2020 10:41 IST

Former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn became the latest high-profile financial fugitive to make a cinematic escape from law-enforcement authorities this week. Ghosn, who was under house arrest and 24-hour surveillance, was confined to Japan with all three of his passports seized by Japanese authorities. In a statement, Carlos Ghosn confirmed his arrival in Lebanon from Turkey, but how he reached Turkey from Japan is not yet clear. The Lebanese media is claiming that the ex-Nissan boss hid in a wooden box meant for storing musical instruments and escaped Japan. Carlos Ghosn was accused of financial misconduct and aggravated breach of trust, including by under reporting his income as the CEO of Nissan.
