MNG company admitted Wednesday that two of its planes were illegally used for the flight of Ghosn. An employee falsified records. The name of Ghosn did not appear on any flight related documents. MNG said it rented two private jets: one from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to Osaka, Japan, and then to Istanbul; the other from Istanbul to Beirut. The company said it only learned from the media that two charter flights helped Ghosn.
Mr Ghosn, 65, of Lebanese origin, was born in Brazil and has French and Lebanese citizenship. In Japan, Mr. Ghosn faced four charges, including failing to report huge incomes and transferring personal investment losses to Nissan. The court of Japan was scheduled to hear the case of Ghosn in April 2020. Ghosn was released on bail but could not leave Japan. Nissan hired a private security company to monitor Ghosn, but Ghosns lawyer warned the company to stop the surveillance, saying it violated Ghosns human rights, according to a source Thursday. The security company stopped the surveillance on December 29 last year. According to the surveillance camera at Ghosns home, he left home alone at noon that day and never came back.
Ghosns lawyer recently revealed that Ghosn will hold a press conference in Beirut on the 8th.
