Ghosn Likely Held in Solitary Cell at Tokyo Detention House


Tokyo, Nov. 26 (Jiji Press)--Former Nissan Motor Co. <7201> Chairman Carlos Ghosn is likely detained in a small solitary cell at the Tokyo Detention House, informed sources said Monday.

Ghosn, 64, is seen spending nearly all his time in the cell with a space of three tatami mats, which is equipped with a sink and a toilet, when not being interrogated by prosecutors, the sources said. A tatami mat measures around 90 centimeters in width and 1.8 meters in length.

According to the Justice Ministry, detainees wake up at 7 a.m. and go to sleep at 9 p.m. Meals are served three times a day at set times, such as dinner at 4:20 p.m. Occupants in solitary cells receive meal deliveries.

Detainees are allowed to take baths two times a week in seasons other than summer.

Foreigners receive booklets of rules in their native languages and communicate with detention house staff by gesture.
