On Thursday, a court official told AFP that Lebanon received an Interpol red notice for the arrest of ex-Nissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn at France’s request.

“Prosecutor Ghassan Oueidat has received from Interpol a red notice […] against Ghosn based on an international arrest warrant issued by France,” the official told AFP.

According to the source, the prosecutor will set in the coming day’s date for summer and question Carlos Ghosn.

As reported by the French-based news agency, Interpol notices are not international arrest warrants, however, they ask authorities around the world for legal actions.

According to the court official, Ghassan Oueidat could either issue an arrest warrant for Ghosn or “he could hold off until his case is transferred from France to Lebanon.”

Adding that if the crimes are punishable by Lebanese law, he can be also tried before Lebanese courts.

“Lebanon will not agree to extradite Ghosn, who is of Lebanese origin, to France because the law prevents it,” the official said.
