France issues international arrest warrant for Ghosn

France issued an international arrest warrant for the former head of the Renault-Nissan alliance, Carlos Ghosn, prosecutors the Paris suburb of Nanterre said on Friday, confirming earlier media reports.

The prosecutors noted Ghosn is wanted over $16.3 million in suspect payments between the automotive alliance and Omani company Suhail Bahwan Automobiles.

Ghosn was arrested in Japan in 2018 and was charged with financial fraud. In late 2019, he escaped from the country. The former Nissan head has consistently denied any wrongdoing and claimed he is a victim of a conspiracy.
