Ghosn's workman disguise a failure, Japan lawyer admits

Disguised Carlos Ghosn leaves detention after posting bail of one billion yen

The Brazil-born ex-CEO of Renault and Chairman of Nissan Motors paid one of many largest bail charges within the historical past of Japan - 1 billion yen ($eight.9 million) - to depart jail in Tokyo.

Ghosn was recuperating on Thursday, his lawyer said, after leaving the Tokyo Detention Center the evening before, just in time for his 65th birthday on Saturday. He has denied the charges he is facing regarding his financial misconduct.

The BBC reports that the court set bail for Ghosn at one billion yen ($8.9 million). The transfer was made electronically but the full amount was required, unlike bail systems like the USA where a portion is offered as surety and the full amount is forfeited only if the defendant fails to appear.

While Westerners were wondering at how the idea of "presumed innocent" doesn't seem to apply in Japan, many here were shocked his release came so soon. Suspects can, therefore, stay in detention for several months before their case comes to trial. Ghosn's legal team offered special conditions, such as a surveillance camera, to win his release.

Two of Ghosn's earlier requests to be released on bail were rejected. "We only think about how we can win a not-guilty verdict", he said.

"If you want to be serious, you might say he should act openly if he is claiming his innocence".

"His detention was very long, and very tough", his lawyer said, adding Ghosn had to sleep with the light on, for example. "Japanese-style justice shaken", the headline said.

Ghosn is also banned from communicating with parties involved in his case, and permitted computer access only at his lawyer's office. Chairman Carlos Ghosn's workman disguise on his departure from a detention facility proved a failure, his defense lawyer Junichiro Hironaka admitted Thursday. Nicknamed "the Razor", he has won rare acquittals in a nation where the conviction rate is 99 per cent. "I hope this case will become the start of ending the "hostage justice" system", Hironaka said.

Chairman Carlos Ghosn is now recuperating after his release on bail Wednesday, following more than 100 days in custody, his lawyer said, noting that no date for a news conference has been set at this time.
