Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Carole Ghosn accused of 'destroying evidence' by Tokyo prosecutors

Wife of ex-Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn allegedly paid hush money

TOKYO -- Carole Ghosn, the wife of ousted Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn, allegedly attempted to obstruct the case against her husband and destroy evidence, Tokyo prosecutors say.

The accusation came on Thursday, the day after Carlos insisted on his innocence in a roughly two-hour news conference in Beirut, where he fled after jumping bail in Japan. Japanese authorities have asked Interpol to issue a notice seeking Carole's arrest for alleged perjury, according to sources.
