Daily US Times, Beirut: Former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn has reportedly travelled to Lebanon after leaving Japan, surprising media reports say.

Mr Ghosn was in bail, and it is unclear how he managed to leave Japan.

The Financial Times reported that the businessman reached in Beirut on Sunday.

He was arrested in 2018 over allegations of financial misconduct and faced several charges.

Lebanon travel surprised many. It is unknown that the French and Lebanese passport holder has struck a deal with prosecutors or fled.

A French newspaper reported that he reached Beirut in a private jet which flew to Lebanon from Turkey, but the newspaper couldn’t confirm it.

Mr Ghosn’s layers have accused the Japanese government of conspiring against him and claimed the charges were ‘politically motivated.’

He later confirmed that he has escaped ‘injustice and political persecution’ in Japan.

This is still remains big question how did he escaped and who helped him. It is quite unbelievable that he acted alone. Speculations arise he probably paid somebody.
