Nissan's Automotive Giant Board of Governors met Thursday with the iconic president of Carlos Ghosn, who was detained in Tokyo for allegedly malicious crime, which has so far been unimaginable to a Japanese rescuer.

Carlos Ghosn, who has been arrested, has since remained silent in a Tokyo detention camp while breaking his rule.
Nissan, a company that started its startling empire-building epic in 1999, is ready to kill him and gain title as chairman of the board.
According to a source close to management, all other scenarios are unlikely. "The proposal would not have been put to the vote if there were any doubt", breathes.
Hiroto Saikawa, Chief Executive Officer, has been conducting the discussions since April 2017. The decision will be made manually. With four votes, the master's withdrawal will suffice.

"This kind of misinterpretation is one of the most serious flaws in the legislation of listed companies," Tokyo Deputy Prosecutor Shin Kukimoto told reporters on Thursday.
However, he did not want to describe in detail the ongoing investigation or the number of daily hearings, as revealed in the Japanese media reports of tycoon falsehoods 64.
Mr Ghosn is also suspected of misuse of assets, according to Nissan's internal investigation, over the past few months, but he does not hold this prize.
On Wednesday, the court decided to extend his arrest for 10 days to continue the investigation. And his detention can far exceed the rules of the Japanese justice system.
The powerful businessman received the French ambassador and the Brazilian consul who were "in good shape".
The Nissan Group as a legal entity may in theory also be prosecuted, said the prosecutor's representative.

If the comments in Japan provide a reassuring interface to the alliance, the local press tone of anonymous statements by Nissan officials confirms that the group wants to examine the "necessary conditions for continuing this" of this structure, according to one of them.
One of the goals would be to change the crashes: Renault holds 43% of Nissan, but Japan has only 15% of turnover, which is a long rancor in the archipelago.
According to the Nikkei business daily, a Ghanaian executive, Carlos Ghosn, sought to integrate the two groups, and "it was possible to have a specific plan ready for next year," which Saikawa explicitly rejected the merger scenario.
