Partner Bambos Tsiattalou comments in relation to Carlos Ghosn fleeing Japan and its justice system, and whether Ghosn may seek to be tried in France instead, in The Times.

 

Bambos’ comments were published in The Times, 9 January 2020, and can be found here.

Details are clearer of how Carlos Ghosn, the former chief executive of Nissan and Renault, was able to escape from the clutches of the “rigged” Japanese justice system to Lebanon. Yet questions arise — not least in Ghosn’s mind — as to whether he will ever feel confident about being able to travel legally again.

“…If Ghosn has a cunning plan to resume normal life, it might well be to seek to be tried in France on the grounds that there at least he would have a fair hearing, Bambos Tsiattalou of the Stokoe Partnership says.

“There would be massive hurdles to be overcome for that to happen,” he says. “But it is not impossible, not least because the alleged crimes involved the French Renault as much as the Japanese Nissan.””
