Carlos Ghosn Escape Wiki – Carlos Ghosn Escape Bio
Carlos Ghosn Escape is a US Special forces veteran. He and his son have admitted illegally helping ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn flee Japan ahead of his trial on financial misconduct charges.
The pair face up to three years in jail and a possible fine for their roles in helping the car industry veteran flee Tokyo.
Kyodo newswire said Michael and Peter Taylor, who was extradited to Japan in March at the request of the Japanese authorities, admitted a string of offenses at their first appearance in court.
Carlos Ghosn Escape age is 60.
Crime and Charge
Former special forces operative Michael Taylor, 60, and his 28-year-old son Peter were extradited by U.S. authorities over claims they smuggled Ghosn out of Japan in a music equipment case as he awaited trial.
At the Tokyo district court Monday, the pair said they didn’t contest the facts laid out by prosecutors in an indictment, effectively conceding their role in the saga.
They face up to three years in prison if convicted of helping Ghosn, who is currently an international fugitive living in Lebanon, which has no extradition treaty with Japan.
Ghosn was out on bail while awaiting trial on four counts of financial misconduct, which he denies, when he managed to slip past authorities onto a private jet, transit in Turkey, and land in Lebanon.
The escape was hugely embarrassing for Japanese authorities, who termed it “one of the most brazen and well-orchestrated escape acts in recent history”.
The Taylors, along with a Lebanese national still at large, are suspected of orchestrating the December 2019 escape — including putting Ghosn inside an audio equipment case to get him onto the private jet.
The pair fought their extradition to Tokyo, claiming they could face torture-like conditions and haven’t commented on their case since arriving in early March.
Tokyo’s Deputy Chief Prosecutor Hiroshi Yamamoto has declined to comment on their arraignment, but local media said both men have admitted wrongdoing during questioning.
Public broadcaster NHK has said Peter received 144 million yen ($1.3 million) from the Ghosts for their help.
