Carlos Ghosn comes down with fever in jail, halting interrogation

Since Ghosn's initial arrest, prosecutors have repeatedly extended his detention and re-arrested him over new allegations.

"In general in such cases in Japan, it is indeed the case that bail is not approved before the first trial does take place", he said, adding that it could be six months before the case comes before a judge.

Otsuru said his team was applying for bail to release Ghosn, who has been detained since his November 19 arrest.

His lawyers have applied for bail, but experts say this request is very unlikely to be granted.

And with each formal charge, prosecutors can hold Ghosn for two months of pre-trial detention, which is renewable. He declared his innocence at an open hearing at the Tokyo District Court on Tuesday that was held at his request to seek an explanation for his prolonged detention.

This week he suffered a fever that prompted prosecutors to suspend their interrogations, though his lawyer said onFriday that Ghosn's temperature had gone back down.

Japan's prosecutors have faced criticism for a lack of clarity and communication on how they are handling the case, with Ghosn held in detention without charge for longer than would be permitted in the United Kingdom for a suspected terrorist.

Ghosn's lawyers are now able to meet him. Those allegations center on Ghosn's handling of investment losses and payments made to a Saudi businessman. I have always acted with integrity and have never been accused of any wrongdoing in my several-decade professional career.

Even if bail were granted, Ghosn would not likely be released until Tuesday given that Monday is public holiday, and all banks will be closed through the long weekend.

Kelly has also denied wrongdoing, saying he will restore his name in court.

Kelly and Nissan were not charged with breach of trust.

Renault's board said an independent review had looked into the compensation of the group's executive committee during the financial years 2017 and 2018 "and has concluded that it is both in compliance with applicable laws and free from any fraud".

Ghosn has been widely credited with saving Nissan from failure in the late 1990s and bringing it together with Renault.

Mr Ghosn, the architect of the Renault-Nissan alliance, is accused of moving personal investment losses worth 1.85bn yen (£13.4m; $17m) racked up on foreign exchange dealings to Nissan.

Renault, which is the biggest shareholder in Nissan, has refrained from removing Ghosn, instead appointing interim replacements.

The twists and turns since Ghosn's arrest have riveted Japan and the business world and the case is also being played out in local media, with another string of allegations leaking in the Japanese press Friday.

The boards of Nissan and its French 43.4 percent owner, Renault SA, met on Thursday for an update on the Ghosn investigations, with Nissan later saying in a statement it remained committed to the alliance that has strained ties between the two automakers.
