France issues arrest warrant for disgraced auto tycoon Ghosn


PARIS (AP) — French prosecutors have issued an international arrest warrant for disgraced auto tycoon Carlos Ghosn, who fled Japan in 2019 for Lebanon in a gripping escape. The Nanterre prosecutors’ office said Friday that the arrest warrant for the former head of Nissan and Renault is one of five it has issued. It’s based on an investigation opened in 2019 into money laundering and abuse of company assets reportedly over millions in alleged suspect payments made between the Renault-Nissan alliance and Suhail Bahwan Automobiles (SBA), a vehicle distributor company in Oman. The Nanterre investigation is one of two separate cases involving Ghosn in France.
