Quotable: "There will be no special treatment for Ghosn. He will be treated in the same way as a burglar.”
-- Tsutomu Nakamura, a former prosecutor and now a private defense lawyer who is not involved with Ghosn’s situation, The New York Times, Nov. 21

Tokyo, November 20, 2018; The NADA online wrote that The New York Times reported that Carlos Ghosn, one of the global auto industry's most powerful and admired leaders, will spend another 10 days in the custody of Japanese authorities, as his remarkable tumble from the top of the world's biggest car-making empire continues.

Japanese prosecutors arrested Mr. Ghosn, chairman of Nissan Motor, two days ago, when they boarded his corporate jet shortly after it landed in Tokyo's Haneda airport. He has yet to be charged with a crime.
