The lawyer said that 'everything had been done to establish Carlos Ghosn's guilt before his trial'.

The French lawyer of former auto titan Carlos Ghosn, currently under house arrest in Tokyo, has attacked Japanese prosecutors for an alleged lack of impartiality and questioned how his client can receive a fair trial.

He was kept behind bars for over 100 days before being granted bail and sacked from all his management roles. "Everything seems to be permissable for the Japanese prosecutor for whom the game is as much not to lose face as to sabotage the French influence on Nissan by protecting its current management with whom he has reached a secret deal," Zimeray charged.

Zimeray said that"everything had been done to establish Carlos Ghosn's guilt before his trial", including through the leaking of information to the media, the source of which was clearly"the Tokyo prosecutor".
