All national dailies except Nikkei reported briefly that U.S. authorities arrested on Wednesday two Americans wanted in Japan on charges of assisting former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn in fleeing Japan last December. Former U.S. Army Special Forces member Michael Taylor and his son Peter were apprehended at the request of the Japanese government, which had issued arrest warrants for both men along with a third in January in connection with facilitating the escape. The Taylors were scheduled to appear before a federal judge via videoconference on Wednesday afternoon. Sankei predicted that the GOJ is likely to ask the U.S. Department of Justice to extradite the two suspects.
