Former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn was detained again on Thursday for the fourth time by Japan prosecutors over suspicions of breach of trust.

According to ANI news reports, Ghosn’s re-arrest has come days after he was legally released on bail by an apex court of Tokyo after spending some 108 days in detention, indicted over charges of underreporting income for Nissan Motor and aggravated breach of trust.

Ghosn was fired as the chairman of both Mitsubishi Motors and Nissan following his detention in last year’s December after which he resigned as the CEO and chairman of French carmaker Renault.

Ghosn has described his re-arrest as “outrageous and arbitrary” in an official statement released by his United States agent.

Ghosn stated, “Why arrest me except to try to break me? I will not be broken. I am innocent of the groundless charges and accusations against me.”

He further added his arrest was an attempt by “some individuals at Nissan” in order to “silence him” and misled the prosecutors.

Ghosn has called for a free trial and also expressed confidence that if tried fairly in the court, he would appear innocent.

A day after Tokyo’s apex court granted bail to former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn, the ex-chairman walked out of the prison on March 6. The Japan court has set Ghosn’s bail at USD 9 million and applied the bail condition requiring Ghosn not to leave Japan.

According to ANI news reports, Ghosn, surrounded by guards, had left the detention centre wearing a face mask, revealing little of his face.

The previous bail request by Ghosn’s lawyers had been rejected, leading former Nissan chief spending its 108 days in arrest.
