Former Nissan Motor Co., President Carlos Ghosn, was accused on Thursday morning of suspicions of disadvantaging the company's money, the public transmitter NHK reported. Ghosn was accused of alleged worsening of confidence in trust, according to NHK. His fourth arrest comes less than 24 hours after he announced from a recently launched Twitter account that he was "ready to tell the truth about what's going on" and a press conference in Tokyo on April 11. Ghosn was released on bail from Tokyo Detention House on March 6 after spending 108 days in prison, as the long detention criticized many legal experts from other countries. Thursday's backing could rule international criticism of Japan's law enforcement system. The prosecutors have recently investigated whether Nissan's alleged payments to a distributor in Oman. The prosecutors argued that some of the money, which came from a budget controlled by Ghosn, was trampled for its own personal use. Ghosn was initially arrested in November in November and was accused of deliberately under-reporting his remuneration for years. He was then struck with additional charges, including worsening lack of confidence in the alleged transfer of private investment losses to Nissan in 2008. Earlier this week, one of Ghos's defense lawyers Junichiro Hironaka said he "cannot rule out the possibility of prosecutors adding additional charges from now on. "If this were to happen, he added that it could delay the beginning of the trial.
