Ghosn: Bail conditions revealed by lawyer
April 8, 2019 5:12 am
The lawyer for former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has revealed the terms his client had to meet to secure his initial release from custody on bail.
Conditions the 65-year-old had faced included using a sole computer, in his lawyer’s office, and one mobile phone.
A 24-hour surveillance camera also had to be installed at the entrance of his court-approved permanent residence.
Mr Ghosn was re-arrested in Tokyo last week, pending trial over claims of financial misconduct.
He has been detained over suspicions that he tried to enrich himself at the carmaker’s expense.
In a statement, Mr Ghosn – who denies any wrongdoing – said his re-arrest was “outrageous and arbitrary”.
Mr Ghosn’s lawyer, Takashi Takano, issued a blog post (in Japanese) over the weekend where he outlined his client’s bail conditions after he was released from custody on 6 March.
Mr Ghosn had been released on $9m (£6.8m) bail after 108 days in custody.
