You can’t make this stuff up. The saga of fugitive Carlos Ghosn has just taken another turn. On the same day as the former Nissan CEO was appearing in public in Beirut for the first time since his January press conference to unveil a new business initiative for crisis-hit Lebanon, a Nissan employee was testifying in Tokyo that he helped former Nissan executive and defendant Greg Kelly find ways to pay Ghosn without fully disclosing his compensation. A close aide of Ghosn, Kelly was arrested at the same time as his boss in late 2018.
Now at face value, these two events do not appear to be connected. But when speaking of Ghosn, the man who found a way to beat Japan’s security measures and flee the country in a private jet, nothing is ever certain.
