TOKYO -- Japanese prosecutors rearrested former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn on Thursday on suspicion of aggravated breach of trust concerning improper use of company funds to pay an Omani distributor.

This is the fourth time Ghosn has been arrested and comes just a month after he was released from a Tokyo jail on March 6. Prosecutors led Ghosn from his Tokyo residence early in the morning and took him to the prosecutor's office by car.
