Mr. Ghosn, the ousted Nissan executive, wasn’t supposed to succeed in Japan, but he never expected to fail like this.
Criminals do not expect to be caught. In Ghosn's case he also thought he was above the law.

From a certain POV he leveraged his early success to defraud Nissan with a degree of impunity. Now that his star has set his criminality is being prosecuted with a vengeance.

Nissan's executive Munoz takes leave of absence in wake of Ghosn arrest
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-niss ... SKCN1OZ02P
In a statement on Saturday, Nissan said that Munoz has taken a leave of absence “to allow him to assist the company by concentrating on special tasks arising from recent events.”

As a result, his planned appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week would be canceled, a Nissan spokesman said.
Ghosn set for court hearing Tuesday to hear reasons for his detention

It it is something more than trivial, jails have health care services.
Japan should make a special Tylenol charge, just for Ghosn. Say ... $10M a pill ?
