TOKYO (AP) — Nissan says its former chairman, Carlos Ghosn, is still behind what it sees as “serious misconduct” found in an investigation at the Japanese automaker.
Ghosn skipped bail in a Japanese criminal investigation against him and later showed up in Lebanon.
Nissan Motor Co. said Tuesday it will continue to take legal action to hold Ghosn responsible for the harm he caused the company. It did not give details in the statement that was its first word since Ghosn’s flight last week.
Nissan and the Japanese criminal case allege Ghosn misstated his compensation and diverted company assets for personal gain.
He denies that. He said in a statement after his arrival in Lebanon that he fled Japan to escape injustice.
