BEIRUT/TOKYO (Reuters) - Ousted Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn decided to flee Japan after learning that his trial had been delayed until April 2021 and also because he had not been allowed to speak to his wife, sources close to Ghosn said on Thursday.

The former auto executive has become an international fugitive after he revealed on Tuesday he had fled to Lebanon to escape what he called a "rigged" justice system.

Sources close to Ghosn said he learned at a recent court hearing that one of his two trials in Japan would be delayed until April 2021. No firm date has been set for either trial but at least one was widely expected to start in April 2020.

"They said they needed another whole year to prepare for it ... He was distressed about not being able to see or speak to his wife," one of the sources close to Ghosn said.
Remember he was arrested in Nov 2018 and kept getting "re-arrested". He was let out for a bit after paying bail then re-arrested before being let out again.

Carlos Ghosn Was a Superhero in Japan Before His Fall

I didn't know that the hero worship supposedly faded in 2016, as the above piece mentions.
I'd know about Ghosn having received knighthood (https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... andhealth1) but only recently learned about a blue ribbon from the emperor of Japan. I stumbled across https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/paneuro/s ... rlos-ghosn which lists a lot of other awards I wasn't aware of.

Carlos Ghosn 'caught bullet train' during escape from Japan
https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... from-japan - if true, he had to be in disguise. He would be very recognizable in Japan due to his prominence and non-Asian people really stand out there.

I skipped towards the end and unfortunately, some the Q&A of it is in French and some in Arabic. Looks like there was some Portuguese at around 1:56:44. At ~2:14:10, he laughed when asked if he recommended a packing case as a means of travel.
