Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Nissan faces fine of more than $18m over Ghosn pay scandal

Japan's securities watchdog plans probe separate from criminal case

Then-Chairman Carlos Ghosn speaks at Nissan's shareholders meeting in June 2018.

TOKYO -- Nissan Motor could be fined more than 2 billion yen ($18.6 million) after Japan's securities regulator decided on Wednesday to investigate allegations that the company understated former Chairman Carlos Ghosn's compensation, Nikkei has learned.

The Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission plans to start on-site inspections at the Japanese automaker in the coming months. The SESC could ask later this year that the Financial Services Agency impose a fine.
