TOKYO -- The Tokyo District Court agreed on Wednesday to extend the detention of Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn until at least Nov. 30, leaving him with the prospect of weeks of interrogation with little contact with an attorney.

Ghosn and fellow representative director Greg Kelly, both arrested Monday on allegations of understating the chairman's compensation by roughly 5 billion yen ($44.2 million), could be held until Dec. 10 if the added detention lasts the maximum 20 days allowed under the law.
