TOKYO | Tokyo court turns down Ghosn’s appeal of long detention
TOKYO— Jan 09, 2019— The appeal by the lawyers of Carlos Ghosn, Nissan’s former chairman, against his prolonged detention since his arrest Nov. 19 was rejected Wednesday by the Tokyo District Court.
Ghosn’s lawyers filed the appeal a day earlier. Ghosn’s detention on suspicion of breach of trust had been approved through Friday, and likely will be extended.
The lawyers and Ghosn argued in court Tuesday against the detention.
