The French government, the main owner of Renaulta, immediately requested a replacement for Carlos Ghosna, and now the board went to the cabinet to meet. Thierry Bollore, Renault's operational manager, Ghosna's duck and immediately takes over his duties, explains sources. At the same time, Philippe Lagayette was appointed interim president.
On the other hand, the board refrained from hitting Ghosna in anticipation of additional information about his arrest.
Ghosn was arrested on one Airport in Japan on Monday. The police then joined Nissan, where the chairman of the board, presented an internal investigation into which he dispersed the company's money and at the same time hiding how much he actually earned.
In Japanese media, Ghosn reported approximately one-half of his total annual yen-worth of about ten billion yen (about 800 million).
Carlos Ghosn is one star car, recently as president of Mitsubishi and Nissan, as well as Renault's director.
Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa turned to Ghosna.
"Too much energy is given to one person," Saikawa said at a press conference, media reported from the Nissan headquarters in Yokohama.
"I must say that this is the dark side of the Ghost era, which takes a lot," he adds.
Partnership Renault and Nissan started in 1999. Then Nissan bankroted. But now it is a Japanese company driving in the French-Japanese Alliance, which raises giants like Volkswagen and Toyota on the world market.
Heavy appraisers now warn that the alliance between Renault and Nissan could be problematic so that he could live without Ghosna on top, as one of the architects behind the post.
