(Update) Japan Govt Raps Ghosn's Claims at Press Meet

(Update) Japan Govt Raps Ghosn's Claims at Press Meet

   Tokyo, Jan. 9 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga criticized Thursday claims made by former Nissan Motor Co. <7201> Chairman Carlos Ghosn at a press conference in the Lebanese capital of Beirut on Wednesday.
   The top government spokesman said Ghosn allegations were "one-sided and not convincing at all."
   Suga told a press conference in Tokyo that whether the fugitive will be sent back to Japan "depends on the Lebanese government's decision."
   Suga rejected Ghosn's accusation that Japan's judicial system treated him like a hostage, saying the system is operated properly to bring out the truth while guaranteeing basic human rights.
   Ghosn fled Japan to Lebanon hiding in a big box late last month while on bail ahead of his trial in Japan over his alleged financial misconduct. His bail conditions included a ban on overseas travel.
