(Update) Lebanese Prosecutors Issue Departure Ban on Ghosn

(Update) Lebanese Prosecutors Issue Departure Ban on Ghosn

   Beirut, Jan. 9 (Jiji Press)--Lebanese prosecutors on Thursday issued a departure ban on former Nissan Motor Co. <7201> Chairman Carlos Ghosn, who has fled Japan to the Middle East country.
   On the day, Lebanon's investigative authorities questioned Ghosn, 65, at the request of Japan through Interpol.
   The Lebanese side has refused to meet Japan's request for the handover of Ghosn, who escaped from the East Asian country late last year while awaiting trial on bail. The departure ban further diminished the possibility of his extradition to Japan.
   The Lebanese prosecutors asked Japanese authorities to provide investigation materials on Ghosn. The departure ban will remain in place until the Lebanese side receives such materials, according to informed sources.
   The questioning of Ghosn by the Lebanese investigative authorities centered on charges filed against him in Japan in relation to Nissan. Ghosn, who has Lebanese citizenship, was questioned also over his past entry into Israel for economic deals. Lebanon's government obliges its citizens to boycott Israel.
