Auto industry experts say that Carlos Ghosn has a long history of beating the odds. During his tenure as head of Nissan, he has managed to come entrench in the islands of the Japanese automaker in a company and the company from the brink of bankruptcy lead to financial success. Now Ghosn seems to have taken from a performance that seems even more unlikely: Escape to fly 24-hour surveillance in Japan to Lebanon, apparently to avoid prosecution for alleged economic crimes. Here’s what you need to know about the strange flight of Carlos Ghosn, the former head of the disgraced of the largest automotive companies in the world. Who is Carlos Ghosn? Carlos Ghosn has long been considered one of the titans of the global automotive industry. During his tenure as head of Nissan and French automaker Renault, he has earned the nickname “Le Cost Killer” closed factories and lay off employees. But it was to modernize Nissan credited with bringing back from the brink of bankruptcy and build what was considered the largest automobile company in the world. Towards the end of his term, but Ghosn, the French, Lebanese and Brazilian citizenship, butt presumably started against the Japanese corporate culture, where CEOs is usually paid less appreciated than in other countries and the executive humility . In November 2018 Nissan announced that an internal investigation Ghosn Ghosn and another guide had been set off was underestimated. There is also evidence that Ghosn has committed other misconduct, including personal use of corporate assets, the investigation found. The Japanese authorities have arrested Ghosn in Tokyo on November 19 this year, according to Bloomberg. What are the charges against Ghosn? Ghosn faces up to 15 years in prison on charges of bad financial behavior. The charges against him are allegations that transmit another former executive Ghosn underreported income and a loss of Nissan Ghosn investments during the financial crisis of 2008, according to the Associated Press. Ghosn has denied all the charges against him. After fleeing the country, said in a statement that he left because “injustice and political persecution,” in front of the Associated Press after. Ghosn seems to have broken the Japanese law to jump through his bail and for Lebanon trip. How did you end up in Lebanon Ghosn? It is not much of a surprise that Ghosn has decided to go to Lebanon, a country in which he is a national and a house, and that does not have an extradition treaty with Japan. The biggest mystery is how does video surveillance 24 hours a day and escape and traveled from Japan – had been revoked after his passports. The Wall Street Journal reported that employees of Ghosn and his wife Carole have been working for months the government of Japan, make a plan for the spirit. The Journal and other outlets reported that a private jet Ghosn Japan Kansai International Airport flew to Turkey, and was then transferred to Lebanon. Several reports have suggested that arrived in Lebanon by using an ID card, passport or a false French passport. The Lebanese Foreign Ministry says that arrived legally in the country, according to the Associated Press. Can Ghosn is deported to Japan? After Ghosn fled to Japan, Interpol, which promotes among the police departments of international cooperation, Lebanon has sent a “red notice” for Ghosn, what it means to arrest wanted. However, Lebanon is not obligated Ghosn return because it has no extradition treaty with Japan. Membership to Interpol is voluntary, and Lebanon threaten any legal consequences if they choose to ignore the red alert, says Michelle A. Estlund, a lawyer specializing in criminal defense work Interpol. “There are countries that do not take any action, even if they know a person is the subject of a red notice and they know that the person in their own country,” says Estlund. Although the order can ignore democratic relationship with Japan Lebanon threaten it “it will not be penalized by Interpol or the Interpol” if he chooses not to extradite Ghosn adds. Estlund notes that a country to extradite for a variety of reasons, choose someone who can not. Delivery can be especially difficult when officials are concerned that a criminal case may be politically motivated – as Ghosn is supporting the event in Japan. In an interview with The Associated Press, the Lebanese Minister of Justice Albert Serhan apparently threw doubt that Lebanon Ghosn would be back in Japan. “The Lebanese authorities have no security or justice to him,” said Serhan. “He entered the border like any other Lebanese use a straight through.” Photo copyright Takaaki Iwabu Bloomberg / Getty Images
