Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Ghosn gets spartan accommodations in Tokyo detention

Ex-Nissan chief allowed two baths a week

Ousted Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn is believed to be held in an austere single-person room, like this one, in the Tokyo Detention House.

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.
