Carlos Ghosn: Lawyer sorry for workman 'disguise' idea
A lawyer for former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn has apologised for disguising his client in a workman's outfit to leave Japanese detention. Mr Ghosn was widely identified and photographed as he left prison on bail on Tuesday. Mr Ghosn is charged with financial misconduct and breach of trust. His disguise was roundly mocked by the media, with one Japanese TV station even re-enacting the incident complete with a man in a lookalike outfit, and a similar van to the one Mr Ghosn used. Mr Ghosn's release comes after Japanese courts had rejected two previous requests for bail, saying the Brazilian-born executive posed a flight risk and could conceal evidence.
