Carlos Ghosn escape: Special forces veteran and son admit role in Japan flight

A US special forces veteran and his son have admitted illegally helping ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn flee Japan ahead of his trial on financial misconduct charges, according to a Tokyo-based news agency.
Kyodo newswire said Michael and Peter Taylor, who were extradited to Japan in March at the request of the Japanese authorities, admitted a string of offences at their first appearance in court.
They face up to three years in prison at the same jail where Ghosn was held until he was bailed in 2019 – a move that opened the door to the elaborate escape that saw the motor industry executive smuggled out of Japan in a case meant for music equipment.
