Japanese authorities on Monday hit Carlos Ghosn with a fresh charge of aggravated breach of trust, the fourth indictment against the former Nissan boss who promptly filed for bail. Laborer disguiseGhosn’s lead lawyer Junichiro Hironaka filed for bail just hours after the charge and said he was confident his client would be released as he prepares to fight the allegations. Ghosn has already won bail once before — but under strict conditions such as agreeing not to leave the country and living under surveillance. Monday was the end of the maximum period authorities had to question Ghosn, who is now technically in pre-trial detention. And just one month after he was freed on bail, authorities re-arrested Ghosn on April 4 as they investigated fresh allegations against him.
