Japan’s top court has rejected an appeal filed by lawyers for former Nissan Motor Co.
Chairman Carlos Ghosn against his detention following his rearrest last week over fresh allegations of financial misconduct, sources familiar with the matter said Saturday.
The lawyers made the appeal to the Supreme Court on Wednesday after the Tokyo District Court rejected their objection to its approval for an initial 10 days’ detention for Ghosn through Sunday.
The district court also decided Friday to extend the detention period to April 22, but for two days less than what was requested by prosecutors.
His return to detention came after he was released on bail in early March, having been held for 108 days since his initial arrest last November.
