NHK gave top coverage to the forecast for strong winds and rain across Japan today. NTV and Fuji TV led with reports that Tokyo prosecutors obtained an arrest warrant on Tuesday for Carlos Ghosn’s wife for allegedly committing perjury in court last year. TV Asahi showed security footage of Ghosn on his way to a hotel before he left Japan. TBS focused on a report that Ghosn will hold a press conference in Lebanon today.
Major front-page stories in national dailies included reports on the arrest warrant obtained for Ghosn’s wife, a GOJ plan to help Japanese companies market fiber optic cables abroad, and Tokyo prosecutors’ intention to obtain a fresh arrest warrant for LDP parliamentarian Akimoto on suspicion of receiving additional bribes from a Chinese company.
