Ex-Chairman of Nissan, Carlos Ghosn’s Musical Escape From Japan

Published

Spread the love

Carlos Ghosn, the ex-chairman of Nissan, is said to have fled to Lebanon in a musical instrument box trying to escape a trial in Japan. According to Ghosn, he has done so to escape from “injustice and political persecution.”

Ghosn was under house arrest and charged with financial misconduct in Japan which he managed to avoid by fleeing the country in a private jet and reaching the Middle East. According to the Lebanese news channel MTV, his wife is claimed to have helped and plan the escape which was supposedly carried out by some sort of “paramilitary-style group.”

The channel reported that the members had disguised themselves as musicians who were supposed to give a musical performance for a Gregorian style dinner at Ghosn’s place in Japan. Ghosn is later said to have escaped by hiding in a case or a box that was supposed to be carrying out musical instruments and reached the airport nearby to leave Japan.

The ex-car manufacturing boss has denied all the accusations and claimed that Japan has the system “rigged.” He was kept under surveillance as he was out on bail and even surrendered his passports.

Junichiro Hironaka, Carlos Ghosn’s Lawyer

As Japan has no extradition treaty with Lebanon it has left the authorities uncertain about the further procedure to seek his return. Prosecutors along with Ghosn’s defence team were shocked and unaware of this till he reached Lebanon. Ghosn’s defence lawyer Junichiro Hironaka considers his client’s behaviour condemnable and inexcusable.

The millionaire has been accused of leading the firm while understating his salary, diverting Nissan’s money to himself and transferring his financial losses to his employer. He has even accused his ex-colleagues of backstabbing and a conspiracy against him in a video earlier this year. He even insisted that he was innocent and alleged that some selfish executives played a very nasty game.

He was arrested in November 2018 where he was supposed to face trial in the coming April of 2020. If found guilty he would have had to do a 15 year jail time.

HYUNDAI STEPS INTO THE COMPACT SUV WORLD. We had Ford Ecosport, Tata Nexon, Suzuki Brezza, Mahindra XUV 300 but there was one name missing. Now, Hyundai is finally here with its new compact SUV that sure looks promising. The all-new Hyundai Venue.

This is the first connected car of the country. It starts with a base price of 6.5 lakhs but comes loaded with features and the base variant also has 6 airbags, ABS and a rear parking sensor. The cabin quality is good and the switches are also of good quality plastic. Top end variant of the car has a sunroof and a wireless charger too. It has an 8-inch touch screen which has an app called BLUE LINK which enables you to start, lock, unlock, turns the ac on for you, sends an SOS signal to the nearest ambulance if the car gets in an accident. It also has theft protection so that you know if someone is messing with your car. Seats on this car are as good as Creta and has good support for under thigh and also has the Hyundai feel-good factor to it. The backseat is wider but the knee room is tighter than the competition. It has good headroom though. It also gets the rear AC vents. For a compact SUV, the boot space of 350 liters is quite impressive.

For an analogy, Creta has 400 liters. It comes in three engine option. A 1.2 ltr petrol, 1.4 ltr diesel, and the new 1.0 ltr turbocharged engine with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. This is the most powerful engine in this price range. Power output is same as Brezza but has more torque delivery. All three engines have good refinement. The steering feels accurate, quick and thus makes driving easy. The suspension is stiffened up nicely. This car does not have the fun to ride Ecosport feel but the grip is adequate.
