    Carlos Ghosn Released on Bail and Leaves in Japanese Laborer Disguise

      Carlos Ghosen leaves jail disguised as a Japanese laborer on bail.

    Japanese journalists await Carlos Ghosn who was expected to be released from Jail on bail after the Tokyo court granted the bail request. Ghosn lawyer's office said it would be near impossible for him to be released the same day due to an appeal by the prosecutor's office.

    Ghosn was granted bail set at $1 billion yen or equal to $9 million US at today's exchange rate. Ghosn is 64 and head of the auto alliance of Nissan Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, and Renault. He was arrested in 2018 on suspicion of underreporting his income by more than $80 million US dollars and saddling Nissan with his personal investment losses, allegations he denies.

    Ghosn new legal team was able to get bail granted on the conditions he will be kept under guard locally with limited to no outside information. Ghosn has claimed that the executives of Nissan are responsible for his arrest as they plotted and committed treason to prevent him from bringing Nissan further under Renault's control.

    While Carlos Ghosn has resigned from the CEO position on all three companies, he remains on the boards of all three companies.

    Yet now that he is out on bail he seems to be insulting the average workers of Japan and according to various stories, his new legal team has apologized for advising the former CEO to leave jail in a disguise being taken away in a work van with ladders attached to the roof.

    Local news outlets have mocked the costume drama bringing more attention than if he had just left on his own in normal business attire and in a business auto. Ghosn is one of the highest-profile detainees which also has made him one of the most famous now.

    Ghosn was seen later in the day walking with two women, one believed to be his wife and the other his daughter in a Tokyo park by where he will be living surrounded by press and still wearing the blue baseball cap and sunglasses.

    Seems he is back in the News and the Security Exchange is investigating as Nissan paid $601,000 for his kids to go to Stanford. This is the same school at the front of college bribes for admission scandal that is hitting the news.


    Seems allot of unusual perks were given to Ghosn that are now coming to light. From Luxury homes to a Nissan paid wedding at Versailles which was a Marie Antoinette themed wedding for his kid.

    These perks make one really wonder about the abuse by CEO's of a companies money for their own personal family gain. :palm:

    • @David The first 8 minutes explains what the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is all about.  The first 8 minutes should give you an idea how much engineering goes into the RS model over and beyond not only over the regular GT3, but ANY road legal track ready sports car.   When somebody says the Corvette E-Ray is better than the Porsche 911, well...if you do pay attention to what and how the 911 GT3 RS is, then you'll realize quite quickly that the journalism is, like I said, lazy...   On a side note, the guy said that the GT3 RS made a Nurburgring time of 6 minutes 49 seconds.   The C8 Z06's time at the Nurburgring has not been set just yet. A set back on the course happened last year.  BMW and Tesla crashed and their cars.   Chevy is said to be back though.  It is also said that the time for the C8 Z06 will BE under 7 minutes  100%.   Some say it will be around the 6 minute 50 second mark.    Not too bad either way... 1.  The Porsche 911 lives on the Nurburgring.  It is its home playground.  Porsche spends and ENORMOUS amount of time and money to set records there.   2.  The C7 Z06 didnt set an official time there either because of set backs on the track involving other cars and accidents.  Yeah...the C8 too...   But, the Corvette does not live there and the Corvette also has other playgrounds that it needs to play in.  Like drag strips.   3.  Corvette is a jack of all trades sports car. The 911 is a precision machine and the Nurburgring is where it operates.  The Corvette operates at all kinds of racing digs.   Drag racing, street light to street light and at the Nurburgring.  For the C8 Z06 to get close to the 911 GT3 RS's time at the Nurburgring in its heavy GT luxury body is a testament of how good the Corvette engineers really are.  But it still remains that the GT3 RS is still a scalpel.  The E-Ray might be a great Corvette, but it all depends of what kind of comparison we want and what kind of 911 we want to talk about.  Anyway...enjoy Jay Lenos garage.   This episode is a great way to understand what the GT3 RS is without any fanboyism and without any positive or negative bias.  The narrative is as truthful as it could be.

    • Interesting review. Cannot complain about their negative being the only interior color is black or black and grey. Seems it the Georgia factory is where the GV70 EV is produced. Sadly only a 236 mile range. Genesis Electrified GV70 first drive review: a killer high-end EV with one flaw (msn.com)
