TOKYO (Dec 14): How big should executive pay packets be? How widespread is lax corporate governance in Japan? And what’s the future of the alliance between Nissan and France’s Renault?
These are the broader issues brought into focus by the indictment of ousted Nissan Motor Co Ltd chairman Carlos Ghosn.
Ghosn was arrested on Nov. 19 charged with understating his compensation by about half of the 10 billion yen ($88 million) he was awarded over five years from 2010. He was re-arrested on Dec. 10 on similar suspicions for another three years.
