The news conference comes a day after Nissan admitted uncertified vehicle checks had continued even after it revealed final vehicle checks for the domestic market were not performed by certified technicians.

The misconduct has forced Japan’s second-largest automaker to recall all 1.2 million new cars it sold in domestically over the past three years.
