Nissan shareholders vote to oust Carlos Ghosn as director
Updated : April 08, 2019 10:07 AM IST
Shareholders, who had gathered for an extraordinary meeting just days after prosecutors arrested Ghosn in Tokyo again, also voted out another director, Greg Kelly, who has also been accused in the scandal. Both Ghosn and Kelly have denied the allegations against them.
Tokyo prosecutors last week took the highly unusual step of re-arresting Ghosn - who had been out on $9 million bail - returning him to the Tokyo detention centre where he had previously spent more than 100 days.
Nissan may claim damages against Ghosn over alleged financial misconduct, chief executive Hiroto Saikawa said, adding he was not yet ready to give up control of the company, as it needed to be stabilised first.
