Japan issues arrest warrant for Nissan ex-chair’s wife

Tokyo prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn’s wife on suspicion of perjury. That adds to the couple’s legal troubles in the country where he once was revered as a star executive. The move comes after Ghosn skipped bail and fled to Lebanon while he was awaiting trial for alleged financial misconduct. Details on the allegations against Carole Ghosn, who is not in Japan, were not immediately available. The Lebanese presidential palace says Lebanon’s president met with the Japanese ambassador and they discussed the case, but did not provide any other details.
