The man who organized Carlos Ghosn’s escape from Japan finally speaks

Former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn was awaiting trial in 2018 in Japan when he was smuggled out of the country to his home in Lebanon in a musical instrument case. It is a story that has captivated the world.

He remains a fugitive but his country does not extradite citizens.

Instead, two of the men who helped him were charged and then imprisoned. The Americans quickly fled Japan and thought that the United States would not extradite them to Japan, but they were sent back and sentenced to two-year terms.

Now that they are out, Michal Taylor, 62, and his son Peter want more than the $1.3million they were paid, saying legal fees have left them penniless. Taylor also revealed that there was a back-up plan to smuggle Ghosn into the Philippines in a cargo ship.

Bloomberg has the story.
