Video Interview With Carlos Ghosn
Junichiro Hironaka & Sho Kosasa, Carlos Ghosn's Defense Lawyer

(The Q & A will be in Japanese with English Interpretation)

Carlos Ghosn, the former chairman and CEO of Nissan Motor Co., recorded a video in which he defended himself against charges of financial misconduct while leading the automaker, according to his lawyer Junichiro Hironaka. The video, made when Ghosn was out on bail, comprises details of a speech he planned to give at a Tokyo press conference on April 11.

As Tokyo Public Prosecutors rearrested Ghosn on the morning of April 4 -- the fourth time he's been detained in the case -- it's unlikely he will hold the scheduled press briefing. Consequently, Hironaka has offered to screen the video, which runs for about nine minutes, at the FCCJ. The lawyer will then hold a Q&A for the press.

Hironaka informs the FCCJ that the video is separate from that which aired on the French TV Channel TF1 on April 4.

This is the fourth press conference held by Ghosn's lawyers at the FCCJ. The Club has extended multiple invitations by phone and email to officials at the Tokyo Public Prosecutors Office and Nissan Motor to speak to the global media about the case at the FCCJ. All such invitations have so far been declined.

Doors open for TV crew "only" at 14:00, all others at 14:30.
Due to space restrictions, there will be a reservation limit. One TV camera allowed for affiliate networks. All media need to reserve in advance, 03-3211-3161 or on the website. Reservations and cancellations are not complete without confirmation.
