Lebanon: Circumstances of Ghosn's arrival unknown

The Lebanese Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that it has no information on the "circumstances" of former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn's escape from Japan but confirmed earlier reports he entered Lebanon "legally."

"The circumstances of his departure from Japan and arrival to Beirut are unknown to us, and all news about them is a matter private to him," the ministry said in a statement.

Earlier, Ghosn, who was arrested and charged with financial misconduct in Japan, announced he "escaped injustice and political persecution." According to media reports, the ex-Nissan chief left Japan hidden in a music instrument box.
