French prosecutors have issued international arrest warrants to capture the Brazilian executive Carlos Ghosn, plus four other people. Information from the newspaper. The Wall Street Journal.
The group is suspected of embezzling thousands of euros from Renault, the carmaker that Ghosn headed, through a car dealership in Oman.
A spokeswoman for Ghosn declined to comment on the arrest warrants.
In November 2018, CEO and then Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Japanese automaker Nissan, arrested in Japanfor alleged financial irregularities in the country.
He was also president of the alliance of three automakers: Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi.
Ghosn escaped a trial on charges of financial misconduct from Japan to Lebanon in December 2019 while he was there hidden in the loudspeaker.
The arrest warrant is unlikely to change the personal status of Ghosn, who has been in Lebanon an international fugitive since fleeing Japan. Ghosn is a Lebanese national, and the Arab country does not recognize its nationals.
The CEO was born in Porto Velho (RO) and moved with his family to Lebanon at the age of six. He holds Brazilian, Lebanese and French nationalities.
Either way, the arrest warrants are another nice blow to Ghosn’s reputation. Claims to be a victim Japan’s unfair justice system.
