Nissan Ex-chair Ghosn Says a 'conspiracy' Led to His Arrest

Nissan Ex-chair Ghosn Says a 'conspiracy' Led to His Arrest

Tuesday, 09 April 2019 03:38 AM

TOKYO (AP) — Nissan's former Chairman Carlos Ghosn is maintaining he is innocent and in a video released by his legal team accuses some executives at the Japanese automaker of a "conspiracy" that led to his arrest on financial misconduct allegations.

Ghosn, wearing a white shirt and dark jacket, spoke calmly in a nearly 10-minute video shown at the Foreign Correspondents' Club on Tuesday.

His lawyer Junichiro Hironaka said the video was prepared in case Ghosn was not able to speak at a news conference. He was arrested last week while on bail.

Ghosn said the executives behind the conspiracy were motivated by what he called "selfish fears," and mistook his leadership for greed and dictatorship.

Nissan has said Ghosn initiated financial misconduct it uncovered and used Nissan money for personal gain.
