A Rio de Janeiro apartment containing cash, art works and personal belongings of Carlos Ghosn has become the latest battleground between the indicted former Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201.T) chairman and the automaker.
Ghosn is seeking to retrieve “personal belongings, documents, cash, objects and art pieces” from the beachfront apartment, which Nissan says it owns.
The home could contain evidence of financial misconduct, according to a filing by Nissan in a Brazilian court last week.
The previously unreported court papers show the extent of the legal dispute between Ghosn and Nissan over access to the apartment, one of several he has had access to around the world.
Ghosn is accused of underreporting his income by tens of millions of dollars.
