American duo tell Tokyo court they regret helping Ghosn flee Japan

TOKYO (Reuters) -U.S. Army Special Forces veteran Michael Taylor and his son Peter told a Tokyo court on Tuesday that they regretted helping former Nissan Motor Co Ltd chairman Carlos Ghosn flee Japan, where he faced trial for alleged financial crimes. Flanked by guards, the two men, who were brought into court handcuffed, bowed deeply to the three judges who will decide their sentence, and asked to be allowed to return to the United States to see family. “I deeply regret my actions and sincerely apologise for causing difficulties for the judicial system and for the Japanese people,” the older Taylor said in a quavering voice.
