TOKYO -- A month since his arrest in Japan, former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn continues to deny allegations of understating his compensation as prosecutors grill him on evidence they say shows his pay was set and thus legally required to disclose.

Ghosn has told prosecutors at a Tokyo detention center that he did not commit to any compensation, according to sources. He is scheduled for release Thursday but could be held until Dec. 30 if the court approves prosecutors' request for an extension.
