Carlos Ghosn: Turkey 'arrests seven' amid probe of Nissan ex-boss's escape

AFP Turkey has launched an inquiry into how ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn travelled via Istanbul as he fled trial in Japan, with media reporting seven arrests. French Finance Minister Agn├Ęs Pannier-Runacher said Mr Ghosn "Should not have absconded from the Japanese justice system", but added: "France never extradites its nationals." Mr Ghosn, who was also boss of French car-maker Renault, has been under investigation in France but no charges have been laid.

Once considered a hero in Japan for turning around Nissan, Mr Ghosn spent 108 days in custody after his arrest in Tokyo in November 2018.
