Fugitive former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn has insisted: “I did not escape justice – I fled injustice and persecution.”
Mr Ghosn was speaking at a news conference in Beirut following his dramatic escape from the country where he was facing trial on allegations of financial misconduct.
He said he had been “brutally taken from my world as I knew it, ripped from my family, my friends, my communities” when he was arrested in November 2018.
The businessman, once a titan of the global car industry, skipped bail and fled Japan despite supposedly rigorous surveillance.
He reportedly took a bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka before boarding a private jet hidden inside a case for musical equipment and flying via Istanbul to Beirut, where he landed on 30 December.
