Ghosn interrogation stopped after falling sick

Tokyo: Japanese prosecutors on Thursday cancelled a scheduled interrogation of ousted Nissan Motor chairman Carlos Ghosn, who has been under arrest since November 19 for alleged financial misconduct, after he developed a high fever. Ghosn, 64, has been suffering from high fever since Wednesday night and has been advised rest by doctors, his legal team told Efe news. Prosecutors have been interrogating Carlos Ghosn since his arrest to try to gather more evidence about the alleged financial irregularities he committed as the head of Nissan. On Wednesday, a court rejected a request by his lawyers to end Ghosn’s detention after he appeared before a judge for the first time on Tuesday and pleaded his innocence. (IANS)
