On January 3, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that a surveillance video showed Carlos Ghosn, the former chairman of Nissan Motor, leaving his Tokyo home alone shortly before fleeing Lebanon.
Surveillance footage also shows no suspicious person entering or leaving his home at the moment Mr Ghosn emerged. Furthermore, surveillance did not photograph Ghosn's return to his home.
NHK also said Japanese police suspected Mr Ghosn might leave his home to meet someone before heading to the airport. Under bail conditions, Ghosn was asked to install a security camera at the door of his house.
On 2 January, the Government of Japan, through the International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO), requested the Government of Lebanon to arrest Mr. Ghosn. Turkey has begun investigating his flight from japan via istanbul and has arrested seven people, including four pilots, for mr gohn's one-and-a-half hour stop in istanbul.
Lebanese local television station MTV reported on December 31,2019 that Ghosn invited the band to perform at his home under surveillance in Tokyo, then hid in an oversized instrument box, was sent on board with the help of privately employed security personnel, to Istanbul, Turkey, and then boarded another private plane to arrive in Lebanon.
