(Update) Carlos Ghosn Denies Allegations of Misconduct in Tokyo Court

   Tokyo, Jan. 8 (Jiji Press)--Former Nissan Motor Co. <7201> Chairman Carlos Ghosn denied all allegations of financial misconduct against him at Tokyo District Court on Tuesday, making his first public appearance since his arrest on Nov. 19.
   "I am innocent of the accusations made against me. I have always acted with integrity and have never been accused of any wrongdoing in my several-decade professional career," Ghosn, 64, told the court, according to a prepared statement.
   "I have been wrongly accused and unfairly detained based on meritless and unsubstantiated accusations," he said.
   "I have a genuine love and appreciation for Nissan," he also said of the Japanese automaker, the alliance partner of France's Renault SA.
   He said, "I have acted honorably, legally, and with the knowledge and approval of the appropriate executives inside the company--with the sole purpose of supporting and strengthening Nissan."
