TOKYO (Sputnik) – Tokyo’s Public Prosecution Office is considering filing a lawsuit against the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance as a legal body over suspected embezzlement by the CEO of the alliance, local media reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources.
Carlos Ghosn, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance CEO, was arrested on Monday on suspicion of financial misconduct. The alliance claims that he has been using the company’s assets for personal purposes.
