Security Camera Shows Ghosn Leaving Tokyo Home Alone

TOKYO – Security camera footage shows former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn leaving his Tokyo home alone ahead of his departure from the country, Japan’s national broadcaster NHK said on Friday citing investigative sources.

The security camera installed at Ghosn’s home showed him leaving his home on Sunday at noon, but not returning.

Ghosn, 65, appeared in Beirut on Tuesday. He had been under strict house arrest on bail in Tokyo, awaiting an expected April trial over alleged financial misconduct.

At the time Ghosn was seen on camera, no one else was captured entering or leaving the home in Tokyo’s Minato neighborhood, NHK said.

Ghosn landed in Beirut in a private jet after a stopover in Turkey, setting off many questions about how he could have escaped.

Hours later, he confirmed he was in Lebanon, saying: “I am no longer a hostage of a Japanese judicial system where guilt presumption prevails, where discrimination is generalized and where human rights are breached.

“I haven’t escaped justice – I have freed myself from injustice and political persecution,” he added.

He did not reveal details about how he was able to leave Japan, although he denied having received help from his wife, Carole.

The former Nissan chairman has Lebanese, Brazilian and French citizenship and holds two passports for the latter – one of which he used at Beirut customs, according to NHK.

Initially, all of Ghosn’s passports were with the lawyers, but in May, a Japanese court allowed the former Nissan chief to keep one of the two French passports after his bail conditions were changed.

He reportedly held it in a locked case, the keys to which were with his lawyers, according to sources NHK cited.

The database of the Immigration Services Agency of Japan had no record of his departure from the country, it added.

Meanwhile, Lebanon’s Justice Minister Albert Serhan said on Thursday that the prosecutor had received a “red notice” from Interpol, according to state news agency ANN and other local media.

The request asks the Lebanese authorities to preventively arrest Ghosn, pending extradition or a similar mechanism.
