After the spectacular escape of former Renault and Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn to Lebanon, the Turkish private jet company MNG Jet filed a complaint. The company’s jets were used illegally to escape, MNG said today.
An employee admitted to falsifying documents by not including Ghosn’s name in the official documents.
Ghosn is on trial in Japan for breach of trust and financial misconduct by Renault’s Japanese partner Nissan. He had been released from custody last spring on bail in the millions and was closely monitored during his house arrest. Nevertheless, the 65-year-old, who among other things has Lebanese citizenship, was able to flee to Beirut.
Report: Ghosn left home alone
The Ghosn who fled Japan apparently left his home in Tokyo alone. The Japanese television broadcaster NHK, citing investigative circles, reported that this had resulted in an initial evaluation of the surveillance camera at the entrance to the house. The recording shows how Ghosn left the house at noon on Sunday, a return was not observed.
Ghosn is said to have flown with a private jet from Kansai Airport in the west of the country to Istanbul and from there to Beirut. The police are evaluating the recordings of other surveillance cameras, saying that she believes Ghosn may have hit someone on the way to the airport, NHK said.
