Fugitive tycoon Ghosn: Japan arrest was a plot

Ex-Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has described his arrest in Japan, from which he fled last month in a daring escape, as a plot against him. He told a news conference on Wednesday that his detention conditions were a “travesty” against human rights. It was the first time Ghosn was speaking in person with journalists since his arrest in Japan in November 2018. Ghosn’s daring escape has perplexed and embarrassed Japanese authorities after he skipped bail and managed to flee the country despite surveillance. He said that the decision to flee was the most difficult of his life.
