On the last day of 2019, Ghosn was confirmed to have successfully fled to Lebanon in Japan. Within two weeks, Ghosn held a press conference in Beirut, attacking the Japanese judicial system and responding to his allegations.

In Ghosn's view, he was caught in a "conspiracy" made by Nissan and publicly mentioned many Nissan executives at a press conference.
"Who is part of the plot?" It's clear that Hiro Nishikawa is part of the plot, Hari Nada and Toshiaki Onuma are part of the plot, and many others. Masakazu Toyoda is the bond between Nissan's board and the government.
Ghosn said: "My unthinkable suffering is caused by a handful of unscrupulous and vengeful people. Their allegations against me are baseless. No democratic country will put people in prison for such allegations, even They are right. "
Speaking of why Nissan executives conspired to frame him, Ghosn said one of the reasons was that Nissan's performance began to decline in early 2017. "In October 2016, I decided to leave Nissan because I signed an agreement with Mitsubishi. I joined Mitsubishi as chairman of the board."

At the same time, Renault's market value has also fallen by 5 billion Euros. The Renault-Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance has survived.
