Nissan ousted chairman Ghosn files complaint over extended detention

Carlos Ghosn, the ousted chairman of Nissan Motor, has filed a complaint against a court decision to extend his detention following his re-arrest on fresh allegations of financial misconduct, the Tokyo District Court said on Tuesday. Ghosn was arrested on Nov. 19 on suspicion of conspiring to understate his compensation by about half of the actual 10 billion yen ($88 million) awarded over five years from 2010.

He has been held in a Tokyo jail since then for questioning. Ghosn was officially charged on Monday. He was also re-arrested.
