New documents presented by the Attorney General to a US court showed that former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn transferred more than $ 860,000 to a company run by two people suspected of helping him escape.
Ghosn had fled to Lebanon last year, after being released on bail pending trial in Japan on charges of financial violations.
These new documents were presented as former Special Forces soldier Michael Taylor and his son Peter Taylor are trying to obtain bail, as part of their battle in the United States against being extradited to Japan on suspicion of a role in Ghosn’s escape.
Taylor was arrested in May in Massachusetts at the request of the Japanese government.
On Tuesday, a US federal judge rejected a request by Taylor to cancel their arrest warrants.
These documents include two financial transfers in October totaling $ 862,500 from a Paris bank account linked to a branch, to Promote Fox, which is run by Peter Taylor and his 27-year-old son, according to records provided by prosecutors to the Massachusetts court.
