Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Ex-Nissan official says he did nothing wrong

Greg Kelly accused of orchestrating pay cover-up for Carlos Ghosn

TOKYO -- An aide arrested along with now-former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn says he acted appropriately and checked with relevant parties on Ghosn's allegedly understated income, sources close to the matter told Nikkei on Saturday.

Greg Kelly, then a representative director, is seen to have orchestrated misconduct including the purchase of overseas real estate using Nissan investment capital on Ghosn's behalf. Kelly has said he consulted internally at the automaker and with external law offices as well as the Financial Services Agency, and claims ignorance of any wrongdoing, sources said.
