  Nissan’s Ghosn arrested over financial law violation  
  Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn was arrested by the special investigation squad of the Tokyo Public Prosecutors Office on Monday on suspicion of violating the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, investigative sources said. According to the sources, Ghosn allegedly understated his remuneration in the company’s securities report.

Nissan confirmed that the chairman had understated his remuneration in its securities report and will propose his dismissal at a board meeting. After French automaker Renault invested in Nissan, Brazilian-born Ghosn joined the company as its chief operating officer in June 1999 with the mission of rehabilitating the financially troubled Japanese automaker. Nicknamed “Cost Cutter,” Ghosn led Nissan to a swift recovery with a three-year survival plan, and the automaker posted record-high profits for the business year ending March 2003.
