Tokyo prosecutors indict former Nissan boss Ghosn on fresh charges

Tokyo, Tokyo prosecutors charged former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn with two additional counts of financial misconduct Friday, in a further blow to an auto industry executive who has remained in detention since his arrest in November.

Ghosn’s lawyers requested bail at the Tokyo District Court following the indictments. But his chief lawyer has previously been pessimistic about the 64-year-old being released anytime soon from a detention center in the capital, partly because he is continuing to deny all the allegations.
