Carlos Ghosn sues his offenders, asks for €15M in reparations
Many of us thought Carlos Ghosn gave up long ago, but , apparently, the scandalized ex-CEO of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance continues to demand justice from its former partners, seeking €15 million in damages from Nissan and Mitsubishi.
According to Reuters, Ghosn filed a claim to the District Court of Amsterdam, Netherlands, which is currently being reviewed. The date of the next court hearing remains unset.
‘In Netherlands, if you want to dismiss a senior manager, you first have to explain to him or her what the charges are and provide ample evidence. They did nothing of the kind,’ Ghosn’s lawyer said in an interview to NRC, a local newspaper.
The kingpin of the automotive industry was arrested in Japan in November last year over alleged fraud charges during his leadership of Nissan. Ghosn himself had repeatedly proclaimed his innocence and said there was a whole conspiracy around him. That said, all of his former employers beg to different.
The ex-CEO of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has been under home arrest since April, having paid $4.5 million in bail money.
If Carlos Ghosn – or Le Cost Killer, which is what his opponents have been calling him – is found guilty, he will be facing up to 15 years in jail and a substantial monetary fine.
