Carlos Ghosn has been detained for 7 weeks since November 19th 2018. He was arrested for alleged manipulation of his financial statements. The Japanese authorities themselves extended Ghosn's detention until January 11th, 2019. Ghosn was supposed to be able to be free at the end of December, but Japan then keep detained Ghosn on another charge.

Japanese officials accused Ghosn of cheating by transferring losses to his private investment to Nissan. He was suspected of using company funds to pay Saudi Arabian businessmen who helped Ghosn to get out of his financial problems. Carlos Ghosn himself repeatedly denied all accusations addressed to him. Unlike Ghosn who is still detained by police, Ghosn's colleague, another former Nissan executive, Greg Kelly, was released on bail.
