Former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has been re-arrested in Tokyo. He has
been detained over suspicions he caused Nissan £3.8m in losses.
He was arrested while out on bail pending trial over claims of financial misconduct.
According to the BBC, prosecutors said this latest arrest related to transfers of Nissan funds totalling $15m between 2015 and 2018. They suspect $5m of that amount was used by Carlos Ghosn for personal expenditure.
In a statement, he described his re-arrest as ‘outrageous and arbitrary’.
He said, ‘I am innocent of the groundless charges and accusations against me. Why arrest me except to try to break me? I will not be broken ‘ He added that is arrest was ‘part of another attempt by some individuals at Nissan to silence me by misleading the prosecutors.’
