Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Ghosn's ex-close aides escape indictment through plea bargain

Two former executives have provided documents on auto tycoon's pay package

Former aides to Carlos Ghosn apparently agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in October or November.

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Prosecutors have decided not to indict two former close aides to ousted Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn after they agreed to a plea bargain over his alleged financial misconduct, sources close to the matter said Friday.

The former aides -- a foreign executive at Nissan and a former executive at the automaker's secretary office -- have cooperated with investigators by providing documents relevant to allegations that Ghosn had underreported his remuneration for years.
