French Investigators will Question Carlos Ghosn in Lebanon
French media reported that, French investigators will arrive in Lebanon next month to question the former executive director of the Renault-Nissan alliance, Carlos Ghosn.
Yesterday, Saturday, the agency quoted an official in the Lebanese Ministry of Justice, who requested anonymity, as saying that “the French investigators will work in coordination with their Lebanese colleagues,” without revealing the date of the upcoming visit and the content of the information that the French investigators are seeking to obtain.
Ghosn’s name, who holds the nationalities of Lebanon, France and Brazil, made international headlines in late December, when he fled Japan, where he was awaiting trial on charges of committing financial misconduct, and arrived in Lebanon via Turkey.
In addition to these accusations, at least two investigations related to Ghosn have been launched in France, one of which centers on suspicious financial transactions between Renault and SBA, which distributes its cars in the Sultanate of Oman and the Gulf in general, and allegations of paying Renault-Nissan’s RNBV company, based in the Netherlands. Millions of euros in return for organizing trips and private parties for the former CEO of the coalition.
The second investigation centers on allegations of misappropriation of “Renault” money at Ghosn’s party at the Palace of Versailles.
The French investigation aims to determine who was responsible for the alleged irregularities committed between 2009 and 2020.
