Asahi wrote that it learned from informed sources that the two Americans suspected of helping former Nissan Motor Chairman Ghosn flee to Lebanon would be handed over to the Japanese authorities on March 1 (U.S. time). The paper wrote that the two are expected to arrive in Japan this afternoon and Tokyo prosecutors are planning to arrest them.

 

Kyodo News reported this morning that U.S. media said the two Americans were turned over to Japanese authorities on Monday.
