Carlos Ghosn's children suspects Nissan revolt behind his arrest, says report
Jailed auto executive Carlos Ghosn's children believe the accusations of financial misconduct against their father are part of a revolt within Nissan against exploring a possible merger with Renault, The New York Times reported.
Caroline Ghosn, the eldest of Ghosn’s four children, told the newspaper that when she saw Nissan's CEO Hiroto Saikawa condemn her father during a news interview after his arrest, she suspected that Nissan’s investigation was rooted in opposition to the Nissan-Renault merger, which her father was setting up.
She and her sister Maya Ghosn, do not have direct knowledge of their father’s business discussions, but both said watching Saikawa address the national news media had cemented their belief that internal company dynamics were at play, reported the NYT.
Ghosn was arrested in November as he arrived in Tokyo for a board meeting. He is charged with underreporting the compensation for several years in securities filings and has been detained in Tokyo.
