Shareholders of the Japanese automaker Nissan expelled on Monday Carlos Ghosn from the board of directors, FT reported.
Carlos Ghosn was accused of financial fraud. Previously, he served as head of the Franco-Japanese automobile alliance Renault - Nissan - Mitsubishi.
Together with Ghosn, one of his closest associates, Greg Kelly, also accused of frauds, was excluded from the board of directors. The shareholders voted for the inclusion of the new Renault president Jean-Dominique Senard on the Nissan board of directors.
Although, Ghosn was dismissed last year from the post of chair of the board of directors of Nissan, he remained a member and took part in meetings. After his release from prison on bail in March, Ghosn’s lawyers filed relevant requests several times, but the court rejected them.
Ghosn and Greg Kelly, were arrested on November 19 last year on suspicion of violating Japanese financial law as he did not properly declare the size of his remuneration of 9 billion yen (over $ 80 million) as chair of the board of directors of Nissan from 2010 to 2018.
