TOKYO—January 07, 2019—The former chairman of Japan’s Nissan, Carlos Ghosn, appeared in court on Tuesday and asserted his innocence while demanding the reason for his prolonged detention.
The hearing was Ghosn’s first public appearance since his Nov. 19 arrest.
Ghosn, appearing in a dark suit without a tie and wearing plastic slippers and looking thinner than he had before his arrest, denied any wrongdoing.
“Your honor, I am innocent of the accusations against me,” he said.
