Turkey charges seven in wild escape of ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn

Turkish prosecutors have charged seven people in connection with ex-Nissan exec Carlos Ghosn’s stunning escape from Japan, according to a new report.

Ghosn, 65, stands accused of financial crimes and was on house arrest when he allegedly fled Tokyo inside a suitcase in December.

Four pilots, two flight attendants and airline executive have now been accused of helping him flee to Lebanon via Istanbul, the BBC reported.

The pilots and executive face charges of “migrant smuggling,” while other crew are accused of failing to report a crime.

Turkish police arrested the suspects Jan. 2.
