Lebanon prohibits Carlos Ghosn from leaving the country

June 13, 2020

The Lebanese authorities have banned former Nissan President Carlos Ghosn from leaving the country, a DPA court source said Thursday.

The decision was made after Ghosn appeared in front of Lebanese prosecutors at the Palace of Justice in Beirut to be questioned by Interpol’s alarm report and request for the arrest of Japan.

Ghosn fled Japan on December 30, where he is accused of various financial crimes. The former Nissan President appeared before the Lebanese Attorney General Ghassan Aweidat accompanied by his lawyer Carlos Abu Jawadeh.
