Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn arrested over financial misconduct

Nissan head of the Alliance boss Mr. Carlos Ghosn will be sucked on Thursday after a board meeting as confirmed by Nissan Chief Executive.

Mr. Carlos has been accused of serious misconduct and other serious allegations that the firm has not yet revealed. He is accused of understating his pay package and personal use of company assets.

For several months now Nissan has been forced to conduct an internal investigation following a whistle blower report on the boss.

Japanese firms have required disclosure of their executive salaries from the year 2010.

From the year 2011, Mr. Carlos is said to have under reported his income totaling to $44m over a five year period.

Nissan also plans to fire senior executive Greg Kelly for deeply being involved in the misconduct.

The news of firing Mr. Carlos has already seen the shares of Renault falling sharply by 13%.
