Ghosn Makes Last-Ditch Bail Plea While His Davos Peers Carry On
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ghosn-ma ... 00422.html
Now the ousted Nissan Motor Co. chairman is making a last-ditch effort to win release on bail by pledging to remain in Japan before his trial for alleged financial misconduct. He’s even offered to wear an electronic tracker and be monitored by private security guards, both at his own expense, according to a person familiar with the situation.

“I will reside in Japan and respect any and all bail conditions the court concludes are warranted," the 64-year-old said in a statement. “I will attend my trial not only because I am legally obligated to do so, but because I am eager to finally have the opportunity to defend myself."
...
If released, he’s willing to surrender his passport, offer shares as collateral and refrain from contact with anyone who could be a witness against him, the person said, asking not to be identified discussing private matters. Ghosn’s previous requests for release envisioned him heading to France, where he’s a citizen, before returning to Japan for trial.

Interesting how this how this happened when he has supposedly been isolated from everyone including his lawyer? I guess his brief appearance in court (if he actually left his cell) might have been his chance.

50k Euros ? Hah
Renault paid 2.3 Million Euros to renovate Versailles in the spring of 2016 and then Ghosn used the palace to host his wedding a few months later. The 50k figure comes from the value that Versailles attached to the rental. I wonder if Renault has ever used Versailles since then. I'll guess not, and this is yet another example of the "creative accounting" that Ghosn practiced so faithfully.
