Ghosn's lawyers renew criticism of Japan's judicial system

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The defense team of former Nissan Motor Co. boss Carlos Ghosn on Tuesday renewed their criticism of Japan's prosecution procedures and stressed his resolve to fight the financial misconduct allegations against him as a year has passed since his initial arrest last November.

In a statement, Ghosn's global defense team said the former auto executive was subjected to a host of questionable practices during more than 100 days of detention prior to his release on bail, though "none of this has weakened (his) resolve" and he is "determined to fight these meritless allegations vigorously."
