NHK reported at noon that judiciary proceedings for the two Americans who were arrested on Wednesday on charges of assisting former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn in fleeing Japan to Lebanon were held in Massachusetts on Wednesday to decide whether to transfer their custody to Japan. The network said the judiciary proceedings were held in the form of a videoconference, adding that although the two suspects attended the proceedings, they did not comment on the case. According to the network, a law enforcement official indicated that the Japanese side will formally file a request for the extradition of the two suspects. A federal judge reportedly explained that there are mainly two stages to deciding on an extradition, and after a court judges that extradition is possible, the State Department will make the final decision on the matter.
