‘I’m happy he did it,’ in Beirut wife of Carlos Ghosn spits Japanese justice

Carlos Ghosn, the long-hailed automotive industry tycoon turned in to an international fugitive after his dramatic escape from Japan while awaiting trial later last year, became united with his wife, Carole Ghosn, a Lebanese and United States citizen, in Beirut again after long fifteen months as together they were found in the Beirut streets holding hands and whispering in a mixture of Arabic and French.
In factuality, the iconic pair’s unique most display of re-union comes in to light when they talked about their former home, Japan, in an interview with a press agency reporter on Tuesday, the 14th of January 2020.
In point of fact, shortly after Japan, which has no extradition tie-up with Lebanon, had asked help from Interpol to bring back its detainee and eventually the Interpol had sent a red-notice to Lebanese Government, Japanese prosecutors had also filed a lawsuit against Carole Ghosn, the 54-year-old Lebanese-American, a New York city fashion designer, accusing the former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn’s wife of perjury.
On top of that, as the mystic escape of Ghosn from a Japanese house detention slowly unfolded, Japanese prosecutors found there had been at least 25 people, mostly former US military commando, involved in an operation that smuggled Ghosn from Tokyo to Beirut and costed nearly €200 million.
Meanwhile, at some part of the interview, slumping Japanese justice system, Carole Ghosn said yesterday (January 14th), “…with time, we saw how the prosecutors were behaving... I said ‘Oh my God my husband is never going to get a fair trial’ and I was desperate.
I’m happy he did it,” while Carlos Ghosn was quoted saying the former French envoy to Japan had warned him earlier on November 2018 about a potential government-backed internal coup.
