Ghosn suspect swells to about 33 million yen for escape. Turkish media May 23 at 7:17
In the case of Carlos Ghosn, the former chairman of Nissan Motor, who fled to Lebanon in the Middle East, turkish media reported that there had been a suspicious remittance worth about 33 million yen to a local airline executive charged with involvement in the escape. In a future trial, it is expected to be pursued whether it was a reward from former Chairman Ghosn.
At the end of December last year, mr. Ghosn was on bail and fled Japan to Lebanon via Turkey on a private jet of MNG Jet, a Turkish commercial airline.
Turkish prosecutors this month charged a total of seven people, including airline executives and pilots, with involvement in the escape of former President Ghosn.
Turkish media reported from the indictment that the executive’s bank account had been transferred to the bank of the executive on 11 occasions between October and December last year, worth about 33 million yen.
The executive claims that the person who prepared to run for President Gone threatened to harm his family if he didn’t cooperate and that he was also a victim. The trial, which begins in July, is expected to be pursued to see if the transfer to the executive was a reward from former Chairman Ghosn.
