TOKYO -- Nissan Motor, off to a fresh start with a leadership team installed last month, has been dragged into a past it is trying to leave behind by disgraced former chief Carlos Ghosn, who this week launched a fusillade against the company that once considered him its savior.

Ghosn, who early last week staged a daring escape from Japan while out on bail, on Wednesday spoke to the media for the first time since arriving in his parents' home country of Lebanon.
