TOKYO -- Lawyers for fired Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn on Friday questioned the legitimacy of his latest arrest, criticizing prosecutors' argument that his freedom must once again be forfeit to advance the probe into his alleged financial misconduct.

His defense submitted an appeal against his detention to the Tokyo District Court. But the court decided Friday to let prosecutors hold him for 10 days through April 14.
