Former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn flees to Lebanon

From Summer Times, 9:09 am on 3 January 2020

Lebanon is deemed unlikely to extradite the runaway auto tycoon Carlos Ghosn back to Japan. The former Nissan boss was awaiting trial in Japan on four charges including hiding income and enriching himself through payments to car dealerships in the Middle East. He has maintained his innocence and on new years eve fled to Beirut to escape what he calls a rigged justice system. Mohammed Jamjoom is Al Jazeera's correspondent in Lebanon.
