After Ghosn, Nissan, Renault, Mitsubishi form new board

The move was created to meet concern at Nissan over Renault's traditionally ascendent role within the alliance, which also includes Mitsubishi.

Mr Senard told reporters.

"Nissan's strong opposition to Ghosn's attendance is very regrettable", Hironaka said outside his law office.

Ghosn was released on a $9 million bail only last week after more than 100 days in detention. He faces charges of under-reporting his salary at the Japanese carmaker by about $82m over almost a decade - charges he has called "meritless".

The court did not give a reason for its ruling.

Renault declined to comment on Monday.

However, the Japanese firm has outperformed Renault recently and many Nissan executives were unhappy with the French company's dominance within the alliance.

Ghosn faces three charges of financial misconduct.

Brexit: Donald Trump blasts Theresa May for not taking his advice

"The event space at Versailles was made available to him without charge, and Mr Ghosn was unaware that the use of the space would be charged against Renault's allotted usage", his French-based lawyer Jean-Yves Leborgne said in February when the allegations came to light, adding that Ghosn had paid for all of his wedding expenses.

Renault-Nissan alliance was first set up during 1999 and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. had been added to the alliance in 2016, and, Carlos Ghosn who had served a Chair for all three companies and the alliance boss, had been thrusting for a much deeper tie-up between Renault and Nissan, including a possible merger, before his arrest and dismissal on November a year ago on accusations of alleged financial misconducts.

Nissan senior vice president for human resources Arun Bajaj left the firm on 11 March, the company said today.

Senard cemented this idea saying he had no desire to be Nissan's chairman, but would instead be an "natural candidate" for vice chair.

New Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard will head an alliance board to include the CEOs of Renault, Nissan and third alliance member Mitsubishi, the companies said this week, pledging a "new start" for their partnership.

Sepehri's move, first reported by Bloomberg, ends her oversight of corporate governance, communications, legal and public affairs at Renault, as well as her influential role as secretary to the board.

If his request to attend the board meeting had been approved, he would have been expected to dial into the meeting via teleconference, given the conditions of his bail, according to a person familiar with Nissan's thinking.
