TOKYO: Lawyers for former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn on Thursday filed a fresh bail request for the auto titan who has been detained for more than three months, the Tokyo District Court said, reports AFP.

It is the first bail request filed by the 64-year-old since he shook up his legal team as he crafts his defence to three charges of financial misconduct.

The former high-flying executive has been in detention since his shock November 19 arrest, and has tried repeatedly without success to secure bail.

Reached by AFP, an assistant lawyer for Ghosn’s lead attorney declined to explain how the bail request would differ from previous filings.

“We can’t comment on details, including any differences in approach this time. We plan to explain about details when we hold a news conference next week,” he said.
