Re: Carlos Ghosn ousted over financial misconduct

Carlos Ghosn, a year after arrest, still seeks trial date and access to evidence
Ghosn's lawyers have asked the court to dismiss all charges against him
https://www.autoblog.com/2019/11/19/car ... rial-date/
An earlier court ruling allowed prosecutors to hand back evidence to Nissan during pretrial wrangling over witnesses and evidence similar to the U. S. discovery process.

If prosecutors are "given the freedom to unilaterally delete the collected evidence and return it to relevant parties, this is equivalent to granting the investigative agencies the right to destroy evidence," showed the filing to the Tokyo District Court.

The lawyers also asked the court to rescind the earlier ruling, saying some evidence could be erased by Nissan to protect confidential business information.

They argued the "ruling deprives Mr. Ghosn of his right to receive a fair public trial by an impartial court," as it enabled prosecutors to view and use the evidence and withhold it from the defense.

Prosecutors are not required to hand over all evidence they or the police gather during investigations unless ordered by the court, unlike in the U.S. discovery process where prosecutors and defense lawyers disclose the evidence they intend to present in court.

The news of Ghosn possibly having fled to Lebanon was in another thread, but there's this tweet supposedly w/a statement from Ghosn.

The above Twitter user appears to work for Bloomberg.

edit: CNBC has echoed the news: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/31/ousted- ... japan.html.

I heard about the above either on the radio or TV earlier today but hadn't gotten around to digging for it. Someone else on TCF dug for me.

99.9% Conviction rate in Japan... Either they're phenomenally good at making valid arrests or justice for the innocent just isn't high on their list of priorities. I have no idea if he's guilty or innocent but if it's the latter then I can hardly blame him for skipping.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Great news! Statistics implied he had no chance and one news report said the trial could have lasted for years. The whole episode revealed Japan's legal system to the world.

I doubt that Japanese leadership will pull Nissan out of the hole.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/ ... r-who-fled
The most widely circulated account of his escape – that he was carried out of his Tokyo residence in a wooden case for a musical instrument and spirited out of the country on a private jet from Kansai International airport in western Japan – has been challenged by Carole Ghosn.

She described the account as “fiction” on Wednesday, but declined to provide details of her husband’s exit.
That would be weird if he flew out of Kansai airport (near Osaka) while staying in Tokyo. Tokyo station to KIX is 531 km by car (almost 300 miles).

Haneda and Narita airports would be more logical w/Haneda being the closest. (I've flown in or out of all 3 of these airports and my most recent trip had me get on a bus from Osaka to Kansai airport, which is on a man-made sinking island.)
