Carlos Ghosn Paid At Least $862,000 To Be Spirited Out of Japan in a Music Case, New Court Papers Claim

08.07.2020 8:29

How much does it cost to be spirited out of Japan in a specially converted musical equipment case?At least $862,000, since you are asking.That is the amount of money allegedly transferred by the fugitive former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn to a company controlled by the sons of Mike Taylor, 59, the former U.S. Green Beret who is currently under arrest for his alleged role in helping the millionaire executive flee Japan disguised as a double bass. However sources told the Financial Times, which reported on new court documents revealing the amount Wednesday, that this may have just been a down payment, and that the full cost of the operation is likely to have been significantly higher. Ghosn’s escape was allegedly facilitated by a team of veteran special forced operatives co-ordinated by Taylor. They posed as a classical music group, and packed music-loving Ghosn, who led Nissan for 20 years prior to his 2018 arrest, into one of their musical equipment cases at the end of a fake private concert at his Tokyo home, where he was residing on house arrest while on bail.Ghosn, secreted inside his box, then took a bullet train ride across Japan followed by two private jet flights to get to his native Lebanon, where he is now Beirut’s most notorious scofflaw. Four Turkish private jet pilots and an airline manager are on trial in Turkey for their role in the James Bond-style caper.Ghosn fled while due to stand trial on charges of financial misconduct, but has argued that he was the victim of an elaborate set up by other Nissan executives and the Japanese government, who were concerned by his attempts to merge Nissan with French carmaker Renault.In June, Bloomberg published a report based on a chain of emails that appeared to lend weight to Ghosn’s version of events, however Nissan has described the emails as fake.The FT reports that the new court documents allege that two wire transfers were made last October from a Ghosn-controlled account in Paris to Promote Fox, a company that was managed by Peter Taylor and his brother Oliver, sons of Mike Taylor.Mike and Peter Taylor were arrested in Boston in May and are fighting extradition to Japan. U.S. prosecutors presented the money transfer evidence Tuesday to argue that the Taylors are flight risks and should continue to be detained. Prosecutors previously argued that they were “not just capable of fleeing while on bond” but are “expert on the subject.”Mike Taylor has a chequered background; as a member of the U.S. Army’s elite Green Berets he was trained in “special atomic demolition munition,” which would have involved detonating portable nuclear weapons in the event of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe. After leaving military service he became a respected hostage negotiator, and through his security company trained commandos, guarded infrastructure in southern Iraq and protected officials investigating mass graves. But he also served time in prison after he was found to have attempted to bribe federal agents, pleading guilty to one count of violating procurement laws and one count of wire fraud. He was sentenced to 24 months in prison but was released after 14 months. In pleadings for clemency in that case, Taylor said he had worked as an undercover agent helping U.S. authorities bust drug and counterfeiting operations in Lebanon. In what appears to be his only public comment on the Ghosn case, Taylor was  interviewed by a news site for U.S. military veterans, Connecting Vets, which quoted him as saying: “The bottom line is this guy was a damn hostage that’s what it was. If he popped out of North Korea or China it would be a totally different narrative.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Envoy says US ready to resume talks with North Korea

08.07.2020 0:42

President Donald Trump’s point man to North Korea said Wednesday that the U.S. administration is ready to resume stalled nuclear negotiations despite the North’s repeated claims that it has no immediate intent for dialogue with Washington. U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun spoke to reporters following meetings with South Korean officials in Seoul, where they reaffirmed the allies' commitment toward a diplomatic approach in resolving the nuclear standoff with the North but avoided specific answers on what was discussed. The meetings came hours after the North’s state media reported that leader Kim Jong Un visited a mausoleum in Pyongyang to pay tribute to his late grandfather and state founder Kim Il Sung on the anniversary of his death.
