Similar action took place earlier last year in turkey when Prosecutors in Turkey have charged seven people in connection with ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn’s escape from Japan in December. Four pilots, two other flight attendants, and an airline executive are accused of helping him flee to Lebanon via Istanbul. The pilots and executives are charged with “migrant smuggling” and the other crew failing to report a crime.
Mr. Ghosn fled Japan after claims of financial misconduct, which he denies. The multi-millionaire former titan of the global car industry was arrested in November 2018 and spent months in prison and under house arrest. He was monitored 24 hours a day and access to the internet was restricted. But on 29 December he fled to Beirut.
Turkish police detained the suspects on 2 January. A government official said at the time that Turkey was not notified about Mr. Ghosn’s arrival, nor his departure from the country. The Turkish airline company MNG Jet has said that two of its aircraft had been used illegally, and it filed a criminal complaint about the incident. Full details of Mr. Ghosn’s sensational escape have never been fully explained. The businessman, who also ran Renault and Nissan as part of a three-way car alliance, insisted he could never get a fair hearing in Japan. He called the justice system in Japan “rigged” and said he was a “hostage” in the country where he was left with a choice between dying there or running.
Michael Taylor is a 60-year-old private security specialist and US Army Special Forces veteran. He once ran American International Security Corporation, a private military contractor that focused on helping people escape difficult situations overseas. As per a profile in Vanity Fair, he has completed nearly two dozen escape operations, charging clients anywhere from $20,000 to $2m per job. This resembles nothing but his skills on escape plans.
According to several media reports, Mr. Ghosn’s escape from Tokyo to Beirut was a well-planned one and the planning alone took over a period of several weeks or months. It was also popular that one of the Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that CCTV footage showed Mr. Ghosn leaving his house and walking about to a nearby hotel, where he joined two other men. The three then boarded a train to Osaka and went to a hotel near Kansai international airport. It is also believed Mr. Ghosn was concealed in one of two large, black box-like luggage cases, which were then loaded onto a private jet without being checked by the authorities. It was last month; a Turkish court convicted an executive of Turkish jet company MNG and two pilots over their role in flying Mr. Ghosn out of Japan.
