The subject of the proceedings was two banquets organized for Carlos Ghosn on the territory of the palace complex in Versailles, allegedly under a contract with Renault.
The former head of the Renault – Nissan – Mitsubishi automobile alliance, Carlos Ghosn, is preparing to give evidence to French investigators. He said this in an interview published with The Wall Street Journal.
French authorities have been investigating the possible misuse of corporate funds by the former head of the alliance since 2019. “I was looking forward to it. I would like it to happen much earlier,” Ghosn was quoted as saying, adding that for this meeting, which he goes to voluntarily, he needed many hours of preparation with his team of lawyers. The subject of the proceedings was two banquets organized for Carlos Ghosn on the territory of the palace complex in Versailles, allegedly under a contract with the French company Renault. In the first case, Ghosn allegedly celebrated his 50th birthday in 2014 under the pretext of a banquet in honor of the 15th anniversary of the union between Renault and Nissan, and in the second – he married in the Grand Trianon (one of the palaces of Versailles) in 2016. During the investigation, the French authorities froze the assets of the former head of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi and his wife for a total of several million dollars.
