TOKYO -- Former Nissan Motor chairman Carlos Ghosn is likely to have his first trial in March or April, about 16 or 17 months after the Brazilian-born tycoon was arrested when his private jet landed at Tokyo's Haneda Airport.

Ghosn has been charged with underreporting his total compensation package as well as breach of trust for alleged improper fund transfers from Nissan subsidiaries.
