Former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn maintains that his deferred compensation was not set in stone and did not need to be reported.

TOKYO -- The clash between Carlos Ghosn and Tokyo prosecutors is heating up as investigators question the former Nissan Motor chairman about evidence that allegedly shows he failed to report deferred compensation in financial reports.

Ghosn and Greg Kelly, a former representative director, had their detention in a facility here extended by 10 days to Dec. 10. The two have denied the allegations in recorded interviews with investigators and argued their innocence, according to sources familiar with the probe.
