TOKYO -- Carlos Ghosn likely knew that he was misusing Nissan Motor company funds and took steps to distance himself from the Dutch unit used to provide him with luxury homes, Nikkei learned Friday.

Tokyo authorities arrested the since-ousted chairman Monday on suspicion of financial misconduct, along with fellow representative director Greg Kelly, who acted as Ghosn's right-hand man. Nissan fired both executives Thursday.
