Report: Ghosn to name people behind 'coup'

A US news channel has reported that former Nissan Motor chairman Carlos Ghosn said he has evidence proving that his arrest was a coup to take him down, and that he plans to name the people behind it.

Fox Business disclosed on Monday that one of its reporters interviewed Ghosn over the weekend, ahead of his news conference scheduled on Wednesday.

Ghosn reportedly said he plans to reveal the names of those responsible for his arrest. He said he believes they include some people behind the Japanese government.

The report quoted Ghosn as saying that he believes "they wanted to take him out" because he was going to merge Nissan and Renault.

It also said Ghosn secretly left Japan because he was upset as he failed to understand the unfairness of the Japanese judicial system, and he wasn't allowed to speak to his wife.
