Carlos Ghosn Faces New Charges

Former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has been accused of new charges of aggravated breach of trust, thus, making up four formal indictments so far.

The new charges claim that Ghosn had transferred millions in Nissan funds to a dealership in the Middle East and directed around five million dollars for personal enrichment.

Prosecutors claim that the transferred money was actually done "with the purpose of benefiting himself by receiving part of the money.”

Nissan itself had filed a criminal complaint against him "after determining that payments made by Nissan to an overseas vehicle sales company via a subsidiary were in fact directed by Ghosn for his personal enrichment and were not necessary from a business standpoint."
