Carlos Ghosn Claims He’s Conspiracy Victim Of “Backstabbing” Colleagues

Ghosn then went on to his main point: that he was arrested "not about specific events" or "dictatorship", but because of "backstabbing" and a "conspiracy" by senior management. "I am innocent of all the charges that have been brought against me", he said, without explaining further.

Wearing a dark jacket and a white shirt, Ghosn sat at a desk with his hands folded as he looked into the camera and spoke in a calm voice.

The video, and comments by his lawyer Junichiro Hironaka alleging harsh treatment by prosecutors against Ghosn and his wife Carole, cast Ghosn as the victim of internal rivalries and a Japanese judicial system bent on forcing a confession.

The conspiracy, Ghosn said, was born out of fear that he would bring Nissan closer to Renault, also its top shareholder.

Ghosn has accused certain Nissan executives of playing a "dirty game" to get rid of him as the Japanese carmaker's chairman.

Notre Dame's Jackie Young enters WNBA
Young, who will turn 22 at the end of the year, shot over 55 percent from the field and 37.5 percent from 3-point range. With her decision, all five Notre Dame starters from this season will be draft-eligible.

Lambasting the Alliance's newfound desire for consensus, Ghosn said this was "not a vision for an industry as competitive as the vehicle industry" and "from time to time that leadership is exercised, and leadership means we do what's good for the company not for what you are capable to agree on".

The distributor, Suhail Bahwan Automobiles, allegedly received $15 million between December 2015 and July 2018, and transferred $5 million of this to a bank account owned by Good Faith Investment - a Lebanese investment firm that Carlos Ghosn effectively owns - before part of it ended up in Carole Ghosn's company.

According to the source, she returned to Japan after leaving for France the day after her husband's rearrest last week on a fresh allegation of financial misconduct.

While out on bail, Ghosn had been preparing to defend himself against charges that include violating the financial instruments law by underreporting remuneration to regulators over a number of years, and aggravated breach of trust in relation to the alleged transfer of private investment losses to Nissan.

He has not been formally charged with any allegations linked to the Oman case. However, the latest allegation is potentially more serious, as it could show he used company funds for his own purposes.
