Defiant Ghosn pins hopes on French probes to clear his name

Fugitive ex-auto magnate Carlos Ghosn is campaigning to clear his name and hopes an upcoming hearing in Beirut with French investigators offers a chance to defend himself for the first time since his 2018 arrest in Japan

The former chairman of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance said he felt empathy for those who are now jailed or on trial for helping him. They are “collateral damage” in a top-level Japanese campaign against him, he said.

He described his downfall, which sent shockwaves through the car industry, as like being “hit by a bus.”
