Why could a new investigation be opened? Already subject to three counts of misrepresentation of income over the years 2010 to 2018, in documents submitted by Nissan to financial authorities, and for breach of trust, Carlos Ghosn is now under threat from a fourth indictment.
The prosecution suspects that he has transferred funds from Nissan, totaling $ 15 million between the end of 2015 and mid-2018, to a company "in fact controlled by him." Of this sum, 5 million were diverted, the prosecutor's office said in a statement. "The suspect betrayed his role (Nissan boss) for personal benefit," he said.
According to a source close to the record, the lawsuit began in 2012, involving a total amount of more than $ 30 million paid to a Nissan dealer in Oman, some of which would have returned indirectly. He would have bought a yacht and invested in a company run by his son in the United States.
