Poor guy, He'll probably only have a few tens of millions left to his name.

Renault has thrown him under the bus. There is a steady leak of new allegations regarding financial impropriety. All bush-league stuff. Using company funds for personal enrichment of a petty sort (well, petty for a rich guy). It's stuff that will win him no friends, get him indicted, and he will probably get off with a multi-year suspended sentence and an ignominious deportation.

Innocent until proven guilty. But... it looks like he's toast.
I agree. Without the political clout, he's toasted french bread. :)

Carlos Ghosn finally granted bail!




Yesterday Ghosn’s family submitted a dossier to the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention - Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Geneva to outline human rights vilations.

The only thing I know for sure is "I don't know". But I sure have a feeling this all stinks. AFAIK, Ghosn's Japanese is not remotely on a level he could do any of this on his own and not being found out long ago. And also you know well that Japanese businessmen have been getting away with all this for ages and will continue to do so. So yeah, this really smells like a case of " Get the gaijin".

I wonder if they will return his bail. It's a shame he's been deprived of another opportunity to share his side of the story.

When he says that he won't be broken, I actually believe him - he's already survived and is still fighting after over 100 days in detention.

So his wife split to the USA.
Not a wise thing to do. The US can seize her assets if illegally gained.

It’s quite helpful to hold multiple nationalities. Obviously, she flew to France with the help of the French ambassador who accompanied her until she boarded her plane.

It has got a bit more quiet on the case, I guess prosecution will be working hard to nail Mr Ghosn who has been released on bail for a second time on 26 April (500m JPY).

Meanwhile - and I cannot state this without a trace of schadenfreude - Nissan does not seem to be doing so well:
