Society

Tokyo, April 4 (Jiji Press)--Japanese prosecutors served a fresh arrest warrant on former Nissan Motor Co. <7201> Chairman Carlos Ghosn on Thursday, nearly a month after he was freed on bail, following his 108-day detention on charges of financial misconduct.

Ghosn, 65, was rearrested on additional breach of trust charges under Japan's corporate law, for alleged improper transfers of Nissan funds to Oman.

Some of the funds are suspected to have been used for the purchase of a cabin cruiser for his family, informed sources said.
