Carole Ghosn, the wife of the chief, is not happy that her husband was in Japan a fair process and the human rights organization of the bell pulled. In a letter she writes, inter alia, that he several times per day is questioned, without the presence of a lawyer. Also he would not have any medications he may not be more than two to three times per week to shower. Further, she writes that Carlos in the car industry a lot of respect and is someone who is honest and with integrity.
During the hearing last week, the first public appearance of Ghosn since his arrest, tried to head off the Japanese right to convince of his innocence. As he claims: “I have twenty years of my life dedicated to Nissan, I have working night and day to achieve that goal.” During the plenary session, summed up he on what he Nissan had achieved, such as the elimination of the heavy burden of debt from 1999 and redirecting to a profit in 2006, and the doubling of the sales of 2.5 million vehicles in 1999 to 5.8 million in 2016.Flight
The lawyers of Ghosn hoped in that case the judicial power to convince him on bail, free to leave, but that request was rejected. Judge Yuichi Tada found that Ghosn locked up had to remain because the possibility exists that the cases kingpin flees, or with evidence going to mess.
The director of the Japanese branch of Human Rights Watch, Kanae Doi, to whom the woman of the Nissan president her letter, did not want to comment. However, she pointed to an earlier statement of her colleague Brad Adams, director for Asia of the human rights organization. “Everyone in Japan is arrested, deserves the fundamental right to the presumption of innocence, to a fair bail and access to lawyers during interrogations.”
In a response denies the Japanese ministry of Foreign Affairs that Ghosn treated badly.
