Wife: Ghosn suf­fers harsh treat­ment

China Daily - - WORLD -

The wife of Nis­san’s for­mer chair­man Car­los Ghosn has writ­ten an open let­ter to crit­i­cize her hus­band’s long de­ten­tion and Ja­pan’s crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem as un­fair and harsh. “My hus­band’s is a case study in the re­al­i­ties of this dra­co­nian sys­tem,” Ca­role Ghosn wrote in a nine-page let­ter on Mon­day. Car­los Ghosn was ar­rested Nov 19 and has been charged with fal­si­fy­ing fi­nan­cial re­port­ing in un­der­re­port­ing his in­come and with breach of trust in hav­ing Nis­san Mo­tor Co shoul­der his per­sonal in­vest­ment losses and make pay­ments to a Saudi busi­ness­man. Ghosn, who led Nis­san for two decades and res­cued the Ja­panese au­tomaker from near-bank­ruptcy, as­serted his in­no­cence in a Tokyo court last week. It was his first pub­lic ap­pear­ance since his ar­rest.
