In video, Ghosn says he is innocent and victim of backstabbing

Carlos Ghosn professes his innocence in a new video

However, Junichiro Hironaka, his lawyer, said Ghosn's defence team had redacted those names.

This reportedly cast another shadow of executive uncertainty which contributed to those who Ghosn claims conspired against him.

The conspiracy, he said, was borne out of fear that he would bring Nissan closer to its partner and top shareholder, Renault.

Ghosn was rearrested by prosecutors last week while out on bail in Tokyo after they announced they were investigating new allegations against him.

In an interview recorded just before his latest arrest, Ghosn himself called on the French government "to defend me" against a case that he has presented as a "conspiracy" by Nissan executives angry as what they saw as Renault's attempt to dominate the Renault-Nissan alliance.

".I'm innocent. It's not new, you have heard it from me in January, and I repeat it today", said Ghosn, who was served his fourth arrest warrant last week for alleged aggravated breach of trust connected with Nissan funds being paid to a dealer in Oman.

Mr Hironaka said a section of the video in which Ghosn named names was removed on his advice.

Mr Ghosn already faces three formal charges: two of deferring his salary and concealing that in official shareholders' documents, and a further charge of seeking to shift investment losses to the company.

There has been huge global and Japanese media interest in his case that has shocked and surprised many from the beginning, the AFP reported. Ghosn had tweeted on April 2 that he was "getting ready to tell the truth about what's happening" and that he planned a press conference for April 11.

His rearrest came just days after news that Renault, which Ghosn also once headed, had handed French prosecutors documents showing suspicious transfers worth millions of euros authorised by the auto industry tycoon.

The lawyer said on Tuesday that Mr. Ghosn's wife, who left Japan last week, did so out of concern for her own safety, adding she meant to ask the French government to help her husband.

Noting that under French law a person accused of committing a crime overseas can be tried in France, Le Borgne told BFM television: "I believe that if we want Carlos Ghosn to benefit from a trial carried out in respectable conditions, in line with our values.it would only be possible in France".

Despite her Lebanese passport being confiscated by Japanese authorities, Carole said she was able to use her United States passport to board a flight and was accompanied by the ambassador to the airport. She said she hopes Macron will help her husband win release from the Tokyo Detention House.

After his arrest, Ghosn was also dismissed as chairman of Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and replaced as chairman of Renault SA in the three-way alliance he created after he tendered his resignation while in detention in Tokyo.
