Carlos Ghosn proclaimed his innocence in sending millions of Nissan dollars to paper companies in the Netherlands and the Middle East under the management of his children. Today he jumped bail sneaking out of Japan to avoid prosecution.
Bloomberg reported about his departure. Disregarding the laws and fleeing to a country without reciprocal legal agreements seems to reinforce the position that Ghosn is indeed guilty despite his video in April [here] claiming to be innocent.
Ghosn claimed the Japanese legal system is rigged against him. The Japanese legal system is not perfect, but definitely more effective than other developed nations in identifying criminals and punishing them for their crimes. This bail jumping by Carlos Ghosn reinforces the idea that he is guilty.
The government of Japan should lodge a formal complaint with the Lebanese government to send Ghosn back for trial immediately.
Maybe now, Ghosn can earn the title #pirateghosn for defrauding Nissan shareholders of millions of dollars?
