TOKYO -- Carlos Ghosn, until last week the jet-setting chairman of Nissan Motor, is likely now confined to a sparsely furnished room measuring just 4.8 sq. meters.
Ghosn and former Nissan board member Greg Kelly, who were arrested last week on suspicion of falsifying Ghosn's compensation, are now being held at the Tokyo Detention House for questioning by prosecutors. Both may be detained until Dec. 10 without formal charges.
As suspects in cases like this involving multiple suspected conspirators are often jailed separately, Ghosn and Kelly have probably been placed in single-person quarters. These include a sink and a Western-style toilet, with a privacy barrier that can be put in place as needed. The jail also has group cells that can hold up to six inmates.
On weekdays, detainees are awakened at 7 a.m. and sent to bed at 9 p.m. The center provides three meals a day, with accommodations made for allergies or religious dietary restrictions.
Detainees bathe twice per week -- or more frequently in the summer -- and are given the opportunity for at least 30 minutes of outdoor exercise every weekday. Clothing and hairstyles generally are not restricted.
Visits are largely restricted to lawyers, and embassy staff in the case of foreigners, with family meetings frequently forbidden. Food, daily necessities and reading material can be sent to detainees, but most items must be bought from suppliers designated by the detention center.
