All national dailies reported on a finding by Tokyo prosecutors and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department that two Americans apparently escorted former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn from Tokyo to Osaka on a bullet train before departing Kansai International Airport for Istanbul late on Dec. 29. The investigators reportedly analyzed security footage from Tokyo and Osaka to determine how the former auto executive “vanished” after leaving his home in Tokyo earlier in the day. The two Americans reportedly met Ghosn at a hotel in Roppongi and took a taxi to Shinagawa Station where they boarded a bullet train. Ghosn was allegedly last seen checking into a hotel near Kansai Airport together with the two Americans, who later checked out of the hotel carrying two large cases for audio equipment. According to Asahi, the two Americans went through proper CIQ procedures before boarding a private jet bound for Istanbul. Yomiuri wrote that the prosecutors are investigating the case based on the suspicion that the two Americans abetted Ghosn in his escape from Japan.
