Ghosn hit with more charges, release unlikely

TOKYO (AFP) – Tokyo prosecutors yesterday filed two new charges of financial misconduct against former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn, meaning the auto tycoon is unlikely to be leaving his jail cell soon. Lawyers for the former jet-setting executive filed a bail application hours later, but have acknowledged that he will probably be detained until a trial. Ghosn denies any wrongdoing and argued in a dramatic first court appearance last Tuesday that he has been “wrongly accused and unfairly detained”. More details in Weekend’s Borneo Bulletin
