Carlos Ghosn’s two assistants to escape from Japan confess… This is the awaited punishment!


Americans Michael and his son Peter Taylor have admitted helping former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn escape from Japan illegally at the end of 2019.

According to Kyodo news agency, the two defendants face a prison sentence of up to 3 years if convicted by the Japanese judiciary, as Michael Taylor, a veteran of the Special Forces, and his son Peter appear in a Japanese court for the first time, after the United States extradited them in March.

They are accused, along with a third partner of Lebanese origin, George Antoine Zayek, who is still hiding, of planning and carrying out the most daring escape from Japan for Ghosn, who has been holed up in Lebanon since then.It is noteworthy that Ghosn had been arrested in Japan, and after his release on bail he escaped in December 2019 hiding – most likely – in an audio equipment box, thus avoiding a trial for financial embezzlement before the Japanese judiciary.

Ghosn, against whom an arrest warrant was issued by the International Police “Interpol”, remains far from the grip of the Japanese judiciary, as Lebanon is not bound by an extradition agreement with Japan.Ghosn, who holds Lebanese, French and Brazilian nationalities, was arrested in November 2018 in Japan and faces four charges, two for deferred income that was not declared to the financial authorities, and two others for breach of trust.

Ghosn asserted his innocence of the charges against him and denounced the existence of a plot by some senior executives at the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan to bring him down.
