Ousted former Nissan Motor Co chairman, Carlos Ghosn, arrived with his legal team at a Tokyo court on Thursday morning to start pre-trial hearings. Ghosn has been charged on several counts of financial misconduct and of allegedly enriching himself at Nissan's expense.
He has denied all charges against him. The former chief of Nissan and alliance-partner Renault SA is currently free on a $4.5 million bail as he awaits trial. Under the bail conditions, Ghosn's movements and communications are closely monitored and restricted to prevent his fleeing the country and tampering with evidence.
