Lawyer defending ex-Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn resigns

Reports in Japan suggest Motonari Otsuru will be replaced by
Junichiro Hironaka

Motonari Otsuru, the lawyer heading the defence for Nissan’s
former chairman Carlos Ghosn, has resigned.

Otsuru’s office and a statement submitted to the court
confirmed that Otsuru had quit on Wednesday. It was the latest
twist in Ghosn’s legal battle after
he was arrested in November
. He has been charged with
falsifying financial reports by under-reporting his compensation
and with breach of trust.
