    Thank you, Gooki, for giving us Ghosn's entire defense statement to read.

    Of course this is just Ghosn's side of the story, and I can't see the evidence in question, but based solely on this one side of the case, it seems to me (as a layman) to be a pretty strong defense.

    Ghosns appeal against the continued detection was rejected. I don’t think anyone though it’d get approved. Will be interesting to see what happens on the 11th.

    Wikipedia says: "Carlos Ghosn...is a Brazilian-born businessman who also has French and Lebanese nationality."

    And Ghosn is one of the top executives of Renault, a French company. So why isn't France pressuring Japan to release Ghosn? Why does it seem as if Ghosn's American lawyers are the only ones outside Japan trying to get him released? Am I missing something here; has Ghosn made himself persona non grata in France? Or does France consider Ghosn, who apparently has citizenship in three countries and isn't French-born, to not be their responsibility?

    Inquiring minds want to know!
    ;)

    The French government understand the key to Renaults continued success is keeping the alliance alive. They also do not want to be seen giving wealthy individuals preferential treatment, local issues with inequality. Maybe if he'd been born in France there'd be more out cry.

    With that said, the old France would have sent in a swat team by now and busted him out. After all the French did blow up a GreenPeace ship in a forgien harbor for much less.

    Ghosn applies for bail

    Renault finds no evidence of wrong doing.

    What's next? Evict him and toss his stuff out on the street before he can arrange to have it moved?

    Nissan seems to be pulling every mean-spirited trick it can think of.

    Jose Munoz resigns from Nissan. Quite a story here. Read the whole article.

    Some of the more interesting bits.

    My 2 cents says Munoz doesn't want anything to do with the internal politics at Nissan.
