๐Ÿ”’ Shock as Nissan boss arrested for financial crimes

By Felicity Duncan

Having a crooked man at the top is not a good look for any organization. After the chair of Nissan Motors, Carlos Ghosn, was arrested on Monday on financial charges, the reeling car company announced immediate plans to remove him from his post.

Ghosn, who is widely credited with the financial rescue of Nissan through its successful alliance with Renault and Mitsubishi has reportedly been charged with filing false financial statements and concealing his earnings from tax authorities. In the wake of the charges, both Nissan and Mitsubishi are looking to cut him loose. Itโ€™s a reminder, as if we needed another, that not all bad guys wear masks and carry guns.
