Nissan, Ghosn Exchange Lawsuits

Nissan has sued it’s former chairman Carlos Ghosn to recover millions that the company says Ghosn took from Nissan thru misconduct and fraud.

Nissan sued Carlos Ghosn in Japan ,claiming 91-million dollars in payback for what Nissan says was breach of duty and misappropriation of company funds.

Ghosn jumped bail from Japan in December when he was smuggled out of Japan, where he was being prosecuted.
Ghosn was taken to Lebanon, where he grew up, and is safe because Lebanon will not send him back to Japan.

This is not the only civil lawsuit. According to Automotive News, Ghosn has already sued Nissan in the Netherlands, claiming he was wrongfully fired as chairman of Nissan and Mitsubishi. The companies responded by saying Ghosn authorized illegal payments to himself totaling about 9-million dollars from their partnership.
