On january 6th japan's kyodo news agency reported that mr. goon's daughter had been in the tokyo metropolitan area two or three months ago with a good friend of mr. goon's family,\" father is about to become a free man.\"
Upon his arrival in Lebanon, Mr Ghosn issued a statement through U.S. agents saying the family had nothing to do with the flight. But the friend points out that Mr Ghosn's daughter may have known part of the plan beforehand.
Kyodo news agency reported that the friend asked Ghosn's daughter if it would take some time for the sentence to be pronounced, while the daughter repeated that \"[ the father] is about to be free.\"
In his statement, Mr Ghosn stressed that the escape was \"prepared by himself\" and that \"reports that his wife, Carol, and other family members were involved in his escape were wrong \".
Mr Ghosn,65, of Lebanese descent, was born in Brazil and has acquired French and Lebanese nationality. Mr Ghosn faces four charges in Japan, including underreporting huge revenues and passing on personal investment losses to Nissan. The Japanese court was scheduled to hear the Ghosn case in April 2020.
On December 31,2019, Mr Ghosn confirmed that he was already in Lebanon and said:\" There will be no more hostage-taking by the artificially manipulated Japanese judicial system. In Japan's judicial system, the presumption of guilt, the prevalence of discrimination and the denial of basic human rights are rife.\"
