BEIRUT (Kyodo) -- Fugitive former Nissan Motor Co. boss Carlos Ghosn said Friday he has "plenty of documents" to prove he is innocent of financial misconduct charges.

"I have proofs, I have facts and I hope I will have witnesses also of people talking about the collaboration between some Nissan people, the prosecutors and some members of the administration into the preparation of my arrest" in 2018, Ghosn said in a pool interview with Japanese media organizations in Beirut.
