Arrested this week on suspicion of violation of law on financial operations of the former head of the automaker Nissan Carlos Ghosn had plans to obtain from the company after retirement 8 billion yen (71 million dollars), said broadcaster NHK.

As found by the Japanese Prosecutor’s office, Carlos Ghosn understated data in the income Declaration from 2010 to 20

17 year approximately 8 billion yen. Until 2010, when the Declaration of high income of the company became mandatory, he received a year of 2 billion yen ($18 million). Then, fearing criticism in receiving inflated wages, it was provided only half that amount, and the second half about 1 billion yen, «deferred», to get then after retirement as severance pay and contracts for consulting services of the company.

According to Japanese law, severance pay must also be declared as soon as it becomes known its amount.

However, as it became known to the company, and the salaries of Directors and heads of the company was in the sole jurisdiction Carlos Ghosn. The company did not exist and «the remuneration Committee» which would determine the income and payment management.

On Monday, Carlos Ghosn, and his right hand in Nissan’s Greg Kelly was arrested by the special division of the Tokyo Prosecutor’s office on suspicion of underreporting income. Currently, the office of public Prosecutor considers a question on excitation of individual cases against the company as a legal entity. The reason for this may be the fact that Carlos Ghosn for a long time did not indicate the proportion of their income, and this occurred with the active participation of senior employees of the company.

Earlier it was reported that the head of the Board of Directors Carlos Ghosn purchased a property in Paris, Beirut, Rio de Janeiro and Amsterdam with company money. Their acquisition was in no way due to official or commercial necessity, they were in the Rut and his family. The purchase and construction of apartments Nissan is estimated at several billion yen (several tens of millions of dollars). The company considered that in this case, the gon was required to specify them in the Declaration of income, as used company funds for their own purposes.

The group has provided this information to the Prosecutor. The acquisition of real estate took place with the direct participation of a member of the Board of Directors, the right hand of Gon – Greg Kelly. He gave orders to the Executive Directors on the transaction as the purchase of apartments on the corporate media. The Prosecutor’s office was able to negotiate with several of them that they will be made concessions in the case of the provision of information and cooperation with the investigation.
