Tokyo [Japan], Mar 5 (ANI): A day after being granted bail by a Tokyo court, Nissan Motors’ former chairman Carlos Ghosn walked out of a prison here on Wednesday.
CNN reported that Ghosn left the detention center surrounded by guards, wearing a light blue cap, glasses and a face mask, revealing little of his face.
The court set the bail at USD 9 million, and the bail conditions require Ghosn to not leave Japan.
The previous 2 bail requests filed by Ghosn had been rejected, leading to the former Nissan chief spending 108 days in detention.
Other bail conditions include installing a camera at the entrance of Ghosn’s residence. He has been allowed to use a computer at his lawyer’s office, while the internet on his phone has been blocked.
Ghosn is awaiting trial on charges of aggravated breach of trust and under-reporting his remuneration for Nissan.
The Japanese carmaker, on the other hand, will be continuing its in-house investigation into the misappropriation of funds and any other improprieties by Ghosn.
Findings from the probe will be reported to the board of directors this month. Nissan may seek damage compensation from its former Chairman.
If found guilty, Ghosn may have to spend up to 15 years in jail. (ANI)
