Carlos Ghosn, the disgraced former Renault CEO, is suing the company where he was in charge for about two decades. He wants to claim a pension payment of 250,000 euros.
French media are reporting Monday about the case that is being filed in February in a French court.
The case revolves around the letter of resignation that Ghosn signed when he was imprisoned in Japan. With his resignation, the former chief executive also renounced his retirement and future share benefits. According to his lawyers, he was forced to sign the letter.
It is the first in a series of lawsuits that Ghosn wants to start. For example, he is also planning to take legal steps to get a pension of no less than 770,000 euros.
