Carlos Ghosn set for first public appearance since arrest in November

This is the latest twist in a series of twists that were completely unexpected.

After the extension of detention of Ghosn by the court last week, he was spending the beginning of the year 2019 in detention through to 11 of January.

The court of Japan has stated that Ghosn has submitted a request to the court for the disclosure of the reasons of his detention and that as of now no date has been set.

Carlos Ghosn hasn't been seen in public since his arrest in Japan on November 19.

The arrest has also put some of the practices of Japan's criminal justice system under worldwide scrutiny, including keeping suspects in detention for long periods and prohibiting defense lawyers from being present during interrogations. The court said Friday it has chose to begin necessary procedures from 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Both Ghosn and Kelly have denied the allegations through their lawyers.

In principle, a court session is held within five days of the submission of the request, and Ghosn would be allowed to appear in court to state his side of the case.

Ghosn was served a fresh arrest warrant on December 21st on suspicion of aggravated breach of trust.

Authorities are pursuing three separate lines of inquiry against the 64-year-old Franco-Lebanese-Brazilian executive, involving alleged financial wrongdoing during his tenure as Nissan chief.

They suspect he conspired with his right-hand man, USA executive Greg Kelly, to hide away around half of his income (some five billion yen or $44 million) over five fiscal years from 2010.

Ghosn was initially arrested on suspicion of underreporting his pay.

They are also investigating a complex third claim that alleges Ghosn sought to shift a personal investment loss onto Nissan's books. In Japan, indictment paves the way for prosecutors to lay formal charges.

Ghosn's detention has shaken the global auto industry and strained the alliance he built between Nissan (NSANY), Renault (RNSDF) and Mitsubishi Motors (MMTOF).
