According to Saturday’s Yomiuri, the former Green Beret and his son who were arrested for assisting former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn in his escape from Japan have admitted the charges, telling the prosecutors that Ghosn’s wife Carole reached out to them for help. They allegedly decided to help Ghosn flee Japan in response to repeated pleas from Carole, who reportedly told them that her husband had been tortured during his detention. The suspects have reportedly said that based on their own experience of being detained in Tokyo, torture is not taking place and the criminal justice system is fair. “We were framed by Carole Ghosn,” they were quoted as saying.
