Ex-Nis­san chief made es­cape to Beirut aboard char­ter flights

Antelope Valley Press - - Business -

ANKARA, Turkey — A Turk­ish jet com­pany says for­mer Nis­san Chair­man Car­los Ghosn’s dar­ing es­cape from Ja­pan in­volved a char­ter plane from Osaka to Istanbul and an­other from Istanbul to Beirut. It also in­volved help from an em­ployee who fal­si­fied flight records so Ghosn’s name didn’t ap­pear on them. Ex­actly how Ghosn man­aged to flee Ja­pan re­mains a mys­tery, but new de­tails emerged about the route he ap­par­ently took to get to Lebanon. He grew up there and is con­sid­ered some­thing of a na­tional hero. Interpol has is­sued a wanted no­tice for Ghosn, but Ja­pan has no ex­tra­di­tion treaty with Lebanon and it ap­pears un­likely he would be handed over.
