- Ghosn's escape: what is known so far
Ghosn fled Japan to his childhood home in Lebanon last month while awaiting trial on charges of withholding earnings, breach of trust and misappropriation of company funds, all of which he denies.
Her cinematic flight heightened tensions between Japan and Lebanon, where Ghosn criticized the Japanese judiciary at a two-hour news conference on Wednesday, prompting Japan's Justice Minister to issue a rare and strong public response.
Lebanon does not have an extradition agreement with Japan.

Ghosn woman will be interrogated
In a statement, Serhan said he had met the Japanese ambassador in Lebanon and reaffirmed the importance of the relationship between the two countries.
He also said Ghosn's wife Carole would be questioned by Lebanese prosecutors when authorities received an interpol notification from her.
"Carole will be subject to the same procedures that were done (with Ghosn) when the red alert is received from Interpol," the minister said.

On Tuesday, prosecutors in Tokyo issued an arrest warrant for Carole on the grounds of alleged false testimony related to the accusation of misappropriation against her husband.
A spokeswoman for Carole said she had voluntarily returned to Japan nine months ago to answer prosecutors' questions and was free to go without charge, adding that the warrant was "pathetic."
Ghosn speaks in exclusive interview
"They knew I left the house quietly because they could know exactly where I went," said former Nissan-Renault president Carlos Ghosn of the Japan flight that has so far not been fully clarified. He gave an interview to GloboNews journalist Roberto D'Avila.
