Lawyer Ghosn’s response

Carlos Ghosn, a lawyer hired by Nissan’s former chairman in Japan, said Tuesday that they had no idea of the client’s escape plan until they saw the news.
One of the lawyers said he could not use any of the three passports to leave Japan or enter Lebanon under another name, adding that the move was “inexcusable”.
Earlier foreign media reported that Ghosn had left Japan and arrived in Lebanon, and it was unclear how he left while the Japanese court’s travel ban was still in effect.
Ghosn later admitted that he had arrived in Lebanon, saying it was done “to escape injustice and political persecution.”
