Carlos Ghosn Journey That Helped Him Successfully Escape To Lebanon
Carlos Ghosn is currently residing in Lebanon after he traveled on a private jet in a black box typically used for concert equipment with breathing holes in the bottom, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Carlos Ghosn, former CEO of multiple auto companies, has been under court surveillance since he was accused of financial crimes. He posted bail and was awaiting trial in Tokyo. However, last week Ghosn made his way to Lebanon where he is currently residing.
Ghosn escaped by taking the bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka airport where a private jet was waiting. Ghosn was then smuggled into a concert equipment box and loaded onto the plane that flew directly to Turkey before a short layover that took him to Lebanon.
Ghosn has citizenship in Lebanon and the country does not extradite its citizens. The escape had been planned for months and Osaka airport was chosen because it was the weakest airport out of the bunch surveyed. Luggage too large for x-rays is supposed to be checked by airport personnel, but this process if typically skipped for those flying private.
