Carlos Ghosn has stepped down as ceo of the French autoconcern of Renault. That has the French Finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, said. Ghosn, who is also the boss of Nissan and Mitsubishi, is already since november in a Japanese cell. He is suspected of fraud at Nissan.
France, which major shareholder is the French automaker, sent recently to his resignation. Business daily Financial Times reported Wednesday that Ghosn was willing to voluntarily get up at Renault. He was soon after his arrest, was replaced as chairman of Nissan and Mitsubishi. Renault, however, held firmly to his position because the accusations to the address of Ghosn have not yet been proven. From own research was not that Ghosn also Renault has committed fraud.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, says Le Maire that Ghosn last night resigned with Renault. Operational director Thierry Bolloré, which already temporarily the duties of Ghosn takes over, follows him, probably. Renault would in addition to the French tire manufacturer Michelin, the outgoing ceo Jean-Dominique Senard want to appoint as chairman.
