According to Japanese authorities, Ghosn passed undetected in a large box through airport security in the city of Osaka before being flown to Turkey, eventually landing in Beirut in late December 2019, where he remains today.
Michael Taylor, a former Green Beret, is accused of hiding Ghosn in the box with the help of another man named George-Antoine Zayek, while his son Peter is accused of meeting Ghosn in Japan and helping execute the escape plan.
