The suspected misconduct of former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn may not be isolated. Several managers of the Japanese automaker Nissan have gone wrong according to a research report. On Thursday, the car manufacturer submitted the survey to the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the primary stock and stock exchange of Japan.
The report concludes that several managers have committed several violations. For example, the CEO and a number of senior managers were paid too much. Most managers are not mentioned by name in the report.
The Japanese stock exchange operator instructed Nissan to prepare the report. The automaker had adjusted figures from the past. The main reason for this was that Nissan had to adjust the income of former CEO Carlos Ghosn. Ghosn is suspected of financial misconduct, among other things. For example, he would have channeled millions through himself through a Nissan subsidiary.
Ghosn fled his house arrest in Japan at the end of December. On New Year's Eve he appeared in Lebanon. He was arrested in November 2018 at Tokyo airport for suspected fraud. The defense of the former chief calls the report "biased".
