The United States agrees to extradite the accused to Japan in the Carlos Ghosn smuggling case



The US State Department agreed to extradite two men to Japan accused of assisting former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn to escape outside the country while he was awaiting trial for financial crimes.

Lawyers for Michael Taylor, a veteran of the US Special Forces, and his son, Peter Taylor, revealed the department’s decision in a lawsuit in Boston Federal Court, seeking to delay the transfer, which could happen later on Thursday.

Ghosn became an international fugitive after fleeing to Lebanon last year to escape what he described as the “biased” judicial system in Japan, where he faces charges related to financial crimes.
