Former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn left Japanese soil for Lebanon on Tuesday without a trace – and a legal expert tells FOX Business he’ll likely be able to stay in the western Asian country without repercussions.
Ghosn, who is of Lebanese heritage, was arrested in November 2018 on financial misconduct charges of under-reporting his future compensation and breach of trust. He was out on bail and was expected to face trial in April 2020.

In Tuesdays statement, Ghosn said he was not fleeing justice
Well ... yes he was.
They probably left the door unlocked and the private jet on the runway until he finally figured he could run.
Its called Face Saving.
Nissan and Ghosn settled the case with the SEC by agreeing to pay a $15 million fine, The New York Times reported on September 24.
I think the whole thing was a trumped up, political prosecution. The Japanese couldn’t stand the idea that Nissan was being run by a Frenchman.
Enough that they’d waited a decade-plus for it? Yeah, I don’t think so.
Did he pay the fine or only agree to pay it?
I have a strange new respect for all those prepper writers who say you should get a second passport.
In America if something like that is true the SEC imposes a fine. We don’t throw people in jail. It’s not a crime. I’ve never heard of any similar prosecution against any Japanese executive officer. I don’t like how prosecutors in allegedly developed countries are pursuing political protections. It’s antidemocratic.
