Ghosn vows to cooperate with Lebanese authorities after travel ban

Ghosn vows to cooperate with Lebanese authorities after travel ban

Ghosn, 65, staged a dramatic flight in late December from Japan to Lebanon, where he asserted he would not get a fair trial in Japan.

Investigators from the public prosecutor's office have accused Carole of lying before the court while being asked to recognize a witness - an Indian executive known to her husband allegedly involved in a series of fraudulent transfers in their favor.

In November 2018, Ghosn was arrested in Japan over corruption while he was the chairman of Japanese carmaker Nissan.

Regarding how and where he will disclose the evidence, Ghosn said, "There will be probably a trial somewhere and I will share" the documents in the trial.

Ghosn is expected to stay in Lebanon for the time being as a travel ban has been imposed on him by the country's prosecutors following an Interpol warrant requested by Japan over the allegations against him.

It will be followed by a reality check against a Ravens team that has easily dispatched opponents more hard than the Titans. The Ravens only give up an average of 93.4 rushing yards per game, while the Titans average 138.9 rushing yards an outing.


For his part, Ghosn claimed on Wednesday he was subjected to pressure during interrogation in Japan.

Lebanon has no extradition agreement with Japan.

At a press conference in Beirut earlier this week, he affirmed that he was innocent and facing charges because Nissan Motor Co., prosecutors, and Japanese officials wanted to block a more extensive merger between Nissan and French alliance partner Renault SA.

Mori though still maintained that the matter had been under the investigation still and did not name anyone who may be responsible for the escape.

Francois Zimeray said in a statement addressed to Justice Minister Masako Mori that her mistake reflected Japanese justice, which goes against the human rights principle of presumption of innocence. "It deserves better than an archaic system that holds innocent people hostage", the statement added.
