Nissan ex-chair Ghosn steps out in Tokyo, drawn by the media

TOKYO (AP) – Former Nissan leader Carlos Ghosn was observed in the Tokyo park Friday two days after its release from a Japanese prison.

Ghosn, in a hood and sunglasses, was seen outdoors twice on Friday, strolling out in the crisp march air. He and several others, believed to be his wife and daughters, visited a downtown Tokyo garden that members of the media drew them and looked at.

The intense media attention was what led Ghosn's attorneys to leave Tokyo Detention Center after his bail on Wednesday in a worker's outfit cap, surgical mask and high visibility vest, said lawyer Takashi Takano.

Many were confused by the somewhat transparent apron, which has riveted Japanese tabloid media. A television show re-enacted his departure.

Takano said in a blog post that he took full responsibility for what he called the "disguise theater". He apologized.

The outfit was confusing, but didn't it prevent the media from tracking the little habit he traveled in after the release, in a spectacular broadcast live on television.

"My immature plan has thereby destroyed the reputation he has devoted his whole life to building" Takano said of his client.

Takano asked the media to respect Ghosn's privacy. This accusation seemed to go high when his comrades followed the celebrity practice as those who went with him, staring straight ahead into obvious irritation.

Ghosn, who led the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Motors alliance, has been obliged to forge financial reports, under-report his income and fail to have Nissan Motor Co. to a Saudi businessman.

He says he is innocent, and that the revenue allegedly underreported was never paid or determined that Nissan had never had any investment losses and payments were for legitimate services.

In Japan, suspects are routinely held in prison for the preparation of their trials, which means they are often arrested for months. The court rejected two previous inquiries from Ghosn for the citizen.

Ghosn led Nissan for two decades, saving the Yokohama-based automaker from near bankruptcy. He was arrested on November 19th.

To win his 1 billion yen release ($ 8.9 million) citizen, his defense team offered special conditions such as installing a surveillance camera at the entrance to a particular residence – his lawyers said earlier that Nissan has

Any breach on these restrictions, Ghosn could land in prison.

Takano said he suggested Ghosn's explanation and hopes to throw media out of his path. While it didn't work altogether, Takano said, "with some miracle," Ghosn managed to have a private reunion with his family in his new home.
