The complaint aims to recover a "significant part" of damage caused by Nissan by its former boss during years of "misconduct and fraudulent activities".

Nissan filed a lawsuit Wednesday, February 12th in a civil court in Japan to claim 10 billion yen (83.4 million euros) in damages from its former boss Carlos Ghosn, who is suing the automaker himself for wrongful termination of his contract.

Suspected of various financial embezzlements, Carlos Ghosn fled to Lebanon at the end of December, when he was released on bail in April 2019 and was preparing his trial in Japan, the first phase of which was supposed to start in April. He also started legal proceedings against Nissan and Mitsubishi in July, finding his eviction illegal.
