Japanese auto giant Nissan has filed a civil lawsuit against its former chairman Carlos Ghosn, seeking $90million in damages. Nissan said it aims to recover a significant part of the monetary damages inflicted on the company by Ghosn. Nissan also added that it may pursue separate legal action against its former boss, over groundless and defamatory remarks made by him in a news conference in Beirut. Carlos Ghosn is currently in Lebanon after jumping bail in Japan, where he faces charges of financial misconduct. He's facing criminal charges for allegedly understating his annual salary and misusing company funds.
