TOKYO (Reuters) – The Japanese prosecutor's office is likely to file a new criminal case against Nissan Motor President Carlos Ghosn, dismissed on Thursday and reported on 3,000 million yen ($ 27 million) in 2015 fiscal year for three years, and the Asahi newspaper on Friday.
Ghosn and former Nissan representative Greg Kelly have been investigating the alleged conspiracy case to reduce Ghosn's compensation of $ 10 billion in Nissan for five years since the 2010 financial year.
Ghosn justified the Nissan fee at about 8 billion yen over an eight-year cycle that ended in March.
The newspaper did not say whether the new criminal case would point to Kelly.
Ghosn and Kelly were arrested this week for alleged financial irregularities and dismissed from their posts. Both remain in custody, so they cannot openly defend themselves against accusations.
Reuters could not contact Japan on a holiday to request a meeting with the Office of the Public Prosecutor in the Tokyo District. Nissan, in his own name, refused to comment on the subject.
