Ousted Nissan boss Ghosn to leave prison after court rejects prosecutors' appeal

A Japanese court Tuesday rejected a last-minute attempt by prosecutors to keep former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn in prison, ruling that the once-feted executive could be released on $8.9 million bail after more than 100 days in detention.

The Tokyo District Court, which had earlier granted Ghosn bail, said it had rejected an appeal by prosecutors who had sought to keep him in prison, pending his trial for financial misconduct.

The decision paves the way for Ghosn's release as early as Wednesday and marks a victory for his new legal team, brought in last month and spearheaded by a lawyer known as "the Razor" for his success in several high-profile cases.

On what was Ghosn's third bail request, the court accepted defense lawyers' assurances that he would submit to extensive surveillance.
