Carlos Ghosn's accused escape plotters lose extradition challenge
US judge says duo can legally be transferred to Japan to face charges
https://asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Socie ... -challenge
BOSTON (Reuters) -- A U.S. judge on Friday ruled that two Massachusetts men can be legally extradited to Japan to face charges they helped former Nissan Motor Co Chairman Carlos Ghosn flee the country in a box and on a private jet.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Donald Cabell in Boston rejected the arguments against extradition by U.S. Army Special Forces veteran Michael Taylor and his son, Peter Taylor, and certified the case for the U.S. secretary of state to evaluate.
Uh oh for these guys...

Two Americans suspected of helping former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn flee to Lebanon have been handed over to Japanese authorities. They are now on a flight to Japan.

That's just wrong (that their extradition was approved and enacted upon).

One would think they must have known that they were involved in something pretty sketchy. And I'm sure they were richly rewarded for their efforts.

Not sure what's wrong here. Not confident we'll find out either.
