Carlos Ghosn took £6.9m in 'improper' payments, Nissan and Mitsubishi claim
Former Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi group boss protests his innocence as fresh allegations claim he received payments without consulting the board
Nissan and Mitsubishi say former chairman Carlos Ghosn received £6.9 million in 'improper' payments without consulting the board, in a joint statement issued by both brands.
Ghosn remains in custody in Japan after being indicted on charges of serious financial misconduct, aggravated breach of trust and understating his income for three years. New allegations come direct from two of his former employers, claiming he failed to consult the board when receiving payments from Nissan-Mitsubishi BV (NMBV), a Netherlands-based joint venture set up to explore greater collaboration within the group.
Prosecutors laid further charges against Ghosn last week, days after he issued a public statement claiming that he has been "wrongly accused" of serious financial misconduct.
The 64-year-old was arrested by prosecutors in Japan in November last year. His hearing at a court in Tokyo on Tuesday was his first public appearance since then.
