UN human rights experts: Japan wrong to detain ex-Renault-Nissan boss Ghosn


A panel of human rights experts working with the United Nations has said former Renault-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn was wrongly detained in Japan, and has urged “compensation” and “other reparations” for him from the Japanese government.

The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention found that Ghosn’s detention in Japan in late 2018 and early 2019 was “arbitrary”.

It called on Japan’s government to “take the necessary steps to remedy the situation of Mr Ghosn without delay”.
