The Man's Got Balls

Post by AAAlphaThunder » Thu Jan 02, 2020 12:32 pm

He was once a titan of the car industry who held hero status in Japan. He then became one of the country's most well-known criminal suspects. Now he's an international fugitive.

Carlos Ghosn, the multi-millionaire former boss of Nissan, spent months preparing to stand trial on financial misconduct charges. At least, that was what the Japanese authorities were led to believe.

He posted 1bn yen (£6.8m; $8.9m) in bail in April. He was monitored by a 24-hour camera installed outside his house. His use of technology was heavily restricted and he was banned from travelling abroad.

Then, in a move that left Japan red-faced and his own legal team baffled, he appeared in Lebanon on New Year's Eve. "I have escaped injustice and political persecution," he declared in a statement.

Got the balls and more intriguingly the resourcefulness to pull it off.

More likely he has considerable resources and a guilty face I suspect

Probably true but brazen nonetheless.

Rumour has it he escaped in the double bass belonging to a member of the orchastra backing a Gregorian Chant group. Fake news as Gregorian Chants are sung acappella
