After the interrogation finished, the statement was referred to Lebanon’s Public Prosecutor Judge Ghassan Oueidat to make a decision that suits Lebanon and its laws according to the Constitution of Lebanon.
Judge Oueidat decided to grant Ghosn a residency document in the file of the Red Notice issued by Interpol, which will allow him to stay in Lebanon. According to AFP, Lebanon has also issued a travel ban against the businessman.
Ghosn has been accused of financial wrongdoings and misconduct in Japan and was on house arrest as of his escape.
