Carlos Ghosn’s Wife Calls President Trump To Help Her Husband

The wife of former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, Carole Ghosn is calling the U.S. President Donald Trump to help her husband over his legal battle in Japan. Carlos Ghosn was arrested in Japan last November over charges of financial misconduct.

“I’d like President Trump to speak to Prime Minister Abe about fair conditions, fair trial conditions and to let me speak to my husband and also to respect this presumption of innocence until proven guilty,” Carole Ghosn, who has a U.S. passport, told BBC News.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will be the host of the Group of 20 economies in Osaka, set to take place on June 28-29.

Carole Ghosn added that she had not spoken to her husband since he was re-arrested on April 4, before being released on bail three weeks later.

“They told him one of the bail conditions, the restrictions, is he isn’t allowed to speak to me or talk to me, which I find inhumane,” she said. “All of this could have been dealt with internally within the company. This didn’t need to go this far and on top of it my husband is innocent and time will prove the truth.”

This isn’t the first time Carole Ghosn asks for political help, calling the French government to aid her husband back in April. Carlos Ghosn has been denying all charges against him since the beginning of his legal battle.

Earlier this month, Carlos Ghosn’s lawyer told Japanese media that the bail conditions his client is being held under constitute a breach of human rights.

    He can’t help him.

      I know… she is desperate, his health has apparently deteriorated because of all the stress he has been put through.

  • Netsphere

    whatever, the dude broke the law. don’t do the crime if you cant do the time

    • Liam Paul

      except he didn’t break any law so why should he do a time for a crime that never happened.

    • Ben

      That’s such an idiotic statement. There is a myriad of different “crime” and the punishment should be reasonable. Japan is going overboard. Like people who get more time for having a bit of weed than child molesters.

  • Liam Paul

    He clearly is innocent. A coup against him is not a crime but Japan wants to send a message to all CEO”S don’t mess with our companies, if you do, you go to jail for any fake reason we can think of.

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      He clearly is innocent.

      Why clearly?

    • Tom

      ….nobody from us knows what really happened. But I’m shure he is one of this guys, which were to almighty for a to long time, for him alone.
      And I am sure Japan is a constitutional state!

    • uS’gedlemba

      If they wanted him out they would’ve just given him a golden handshake and called it a day he is an employee afterall and not an owner…though I suspect he felt like he was owner…anyways the board would have just asked him to step down, I’m inclined to believe Nissan truly have a case to pursue.

  • AND THE DRAMA CONTINUES. MAYBE A NEW SERIES IN THE MAKING.

  • Stephen G

    It’s fitting that one criminal would go to another criminal for help. Birds of a feather I think is the old saying.

    • Six_Tymes

      with your logic, then she should be calling Heil Hillary, the two time loser, most corrupt politician in history.

      • matrem

        And yet she’s never been convicted of anything, despite years of Republican-led investigations

        • Mr. EP9

          Neither has the President despite Democrat led investigations. You’re not impeaching the man……ever. It doesn’t matter matter how many times it keeps trending on Twitter, it’s not happening. Give it up already.

          • Enter Ranting

            Geez, how can people defend the idiot in chief at this point?! Hasn’t he proven to you by now that he’s a feckless grifter? Wake up! We’re coming for your moron. Impeachment is a distraction. Nervous Nancy has it handled.

    • Tan Lee

      It’s so funny how how people jump on the ‘guilty until proven innocent’ band wagon. I wonder if you still think he were a criminal if it were your old man locked up and the ‘Allegations’ were against him?

      • Stephen G

        I know! Can you hear all those people yelling “Lock Him Up!” Tragic.

        • Ben

          Funny because “Lock her up” was the statement being chanted at Hilary for treason.

          • Stephen G

            Ahhhhhhhhh! you get it!

    • Mr. EP9

      If that was true then the president would have been tried and convicted already but he hasn’t.

      • Stephen G

        Patience you must have.

  • Jason Miller

    It’s the Japanese government that has him detained, not Nissan. Everyone seems to forget that.

    • Six_Tymes

      i didn’t forget that, but its the other corporate heads that started this mess.

  • KenjiK

    I’d say Renault is the one who should be the most ashamed. I highly doubt that Ghosn is (completely) innocent, but i’d bet that the executive at Nissan and Renault knew what he was doing.
    Plus, he saved both brands.

  • AintYerPa

    Umm, because he does. He IS the leader of the most powerful country in the World…

            I just can’t believe I’m talking to someone so high up in Japanese politics! This is AWESOME!!!!!

            What is Abe’s favorite color???

            Huh… Interesting. I would have assumed he was more of a Bright Red kinda guy…

    Nissan has made nothing but garbage cars ever since Renault took a big stake in them. They’re losing sales in the US fast.

        Still using “triggered?” Hasn’t the Conservative Lexicon been updated with new terms? Or maybe you’re of so little consequence that you weren’t notified. I mean, you’re not very clever.

        • europeon

          I’m sorry, but the “conservative lexicon” doesn’t change to accommodate all the snowflakes’ needs and feelings. We actually got important things to do, like making sure the world is still running.

            Yeah, you’re pretty great at making giant messes that we have to clean up. (By the way, the imbecile in the Oval Office is the biggest, whiniest snowflake of all – “presidential harassment! It’s so unfair!!!” – so maybe you’ll want to stay away from that insult.)
