LONDON/PARIS (Financial Times) -- Carlos Ghosn is taking Renault to court in an attempt to claim a 250,000 euro pension payment, in the first of several legal cases the fugitive former car boss hopes to use to recoup money forfeited since his arrest in 2018.

In a suit filed to France's labour court before he fled Japan, lawyers for Mr Ghosn argued that he is entitled to the payment despite quitting as company chairman last January while in Japanese custody.
