BEIRUT, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Ousted Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn said on Wednesday that if France’s legal authorities wanted to speak to him about an investigation into alleged financial misconduct in France, he was willing to talk to them.
Asked at a news conference in Lebanon what he was seeking from the French authorities, he said: “Nothing.” He said though that he expected that the presumption of innocence would be respected in France.
Ghosn, who arrived in Lebanon after fleeing prosecution in Japan late last month, has denied any financial misconduct. (Writing by Sarah White, Dominique Vidalon and Gilles Gillaume and Christian Lowe in Paris)
