Renault today confirmed Carlos Ghosn as CEO of the French Automobile Group and confirmed that the salary of the highest-ranking executive director in Japan is legitimate.
However, the Multinational Council said the company would continue investigating suspicious elements sent by Nissan – a company that starts with the alliance with Mitsubishi.
On November 19, Nissan and Renault were arrested in Japan for alleged misappropriation. A few days later, Nissan took him out of office, and then the Japanese Mitsubishi followed the same step.
The leaders of these companies felt that it was very difficult to keep 64-year-old Brazilian executives in office. A Japanese judge has charged him that his income has been cut by about 38 million dollars for five years while he was in charge of Nissan.
On Monday, the Japanese prosecutor's office officially handed over to the former Nissan driver and also sued the vehicle manufacturer for his alleged liability in the financial scandal.
Ghosn joined Renault in 1996 as Chief Executive Officer. In 1999, he joined Nissan in a high position, and already in 2001, he was Executive Director of the company, transforming himself into the fourth foreign country driving Japanese cars.
