Japan needs to keep Nissan from being forced into a merger with Renault. Nissan makes 60% of the revenue of the alliance, but it has nowhere near that decision-making power. Nissan was not saved by Renault. Nissan did not go through bankruptcy because of Renault, but Nissan would have been just fine with a bankruptcy reorganization. What Renault's presence did do was to hobble Nissan's quality. Nissan needs to extricate itself. European partners just don't seem to be that good to have given the predatory nature we've seen from Mercedes, Renault, and Fiat.

Guess who is about to get re-re-arrested.

Looks like Nissan will be dumped soon: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...ance/39516309/

Peugot will probably go after JLR as its consolation prize.

Nissan can reap its rewards.

Actually, there is massive benefit for Nissan by staying in the group with the arrival of Chrysler.

Japan has an absurdly high conviction rate, sounds like he was driven to being a fugitive. Another dramatic event in the fall of a recent automotive great.

Sorry, but I think Ghosn is dirty. There is WAY too much smoke here for there not to be fire. Plus, wasnt his #2 dumped and charged with the same thing?

No doubt he is dirty. And its not like Renault-Nissans are good cars anyway.

Lebanon's next move will be interesting, but somehow I think he has evaded the Japanese authorities for good now.

I'm very glad he escaped
