Former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn claims to have "actual evidence" showing that his arrest in Japan was part of an organized attempt to "take him out" for trying to merge the company with French car manufacturer Renault, Fox Business reports.

Fox's Maria Bartiromo spoke with Ghosn over the weekend, and said Monday that he claims "the Japanese government was fully behind his imprisonment and involved in the coup because they didn't like the fact that he was trying to merge Nissan with Renault."

She added that Ghosn "said he's going to beat this. He said he's willing to have his case tried in any court around the world, but not in Japan because he does not expect that he's going to get a fair trial."

Ghosn fled Japan by reportedly exploiting relaxed security around private jets after he was placed under house arrest for alleged financial misconduct. He had been unable to see his wife because Japanese authorities feared she would fake or hide evidence, but "now he is with his wife in Lebanon," according to Bartiromo, where "he will try to give a press conference on Wednesday."
