Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Former Nissan exec Kelly granted bail by Tokyo court

Bail set at $635,600, but prosecutors appeal court's decision

TOKYO -- The Tokyo District Court on Tuesday approved a lawyer's request to set bail for Greg Kelly, Nissan Motor's former representative director who was arrested more than a month ago along with Nissan's former Chairman Carlos Ghosn.

Bail was set at 70 million yen ($635,600). But prosecutors proceeded with a quasi appeal later in the day. Kelly's detention can be extended if the appeal is approved.
