Japan presses for Ghosn’s extradition from Lebanon

Japan is pressing Lebanon to return fugitive ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn, who escaped house arrest in Tokyo. Lebanon does not typically surrender its citizens but Japan says it can request his extradition. According to reports, Mr Ghosn walked out of his house on  29th December last before boarding a bullet train to Osaka.

He was then bundled into a flight case, which was put on a Turkey bound plane.
Mr Ghosn ran Nissan until he was arrested on charges of financial misconduct in November 2018. But, in the final days of 2019, he skipped bail to board a private jet that took him to Turkey before he travelled on to Lebanon.
