Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Ghosn nears Friday release on bail

Under international criticism, court rejects extended detention of ex-Nissan chairman

Former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn has been held at the Tokyo Detention House since his arrest on Nov. 19.

TOKYO -- Former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn could be released on bail as soon as Friday after the Tokyo District Court took the rare step Thursday of denying requests from prosecutors to extend his detention and that of Representative Director Greg Kelly.

The decision against keeping the pair in custody for another 10 days allows their lawyers to file requests for bail, which they probably will Friday. If the court approves, Ghosn and Kelly could be released from their monthlong detention that day.
