An American father and son were extradited from the United States to Japan on Monday on charges of being involved in the escape of Carlos Kozn, former CEO of Japanese carmaker Nissan.
Former Special Forces member Michael Taylor and his son Peter Taylor tried in vain to prevent him from being handed over to the Supreme Court at the last minute. Two Massachusetts men fear they will not get a fair trial in Japan. They think that only Japan wants to sue them because the Asian country is so embarrassed by Goshen’s escape.
The former Nissan CEO had to go to court in Japan on suspicion of fraud and financial misconduct. In late 2019, he was able to leave the country in Hollywood style when he was released on bail.
Japan alleges father and son helped escape to Kozulin via Kansai airport in what is known as the flight case. These boxes are usually used to carry musical instruments and stage accessories during concert tours. The men would have received about $ 1.3 million (over மில்லியன் 1 million) to escape.
The American denies the son’s involvement
Michael Taylor has never denied the allegations, but insists his son had nothing to do with the escape and was not in Japan during the flight. In the past, Taylor ran his own security company and was hired by parents to find abducted children. He mentioned an interview last year Vanity Fair In it he described in detail Gosin’s escape.
In October, the US State Department decided to hand over Taylor. However, they tried to stop this in court.
Goshen has been living in Lebanon since his escape. The CEO says his case is politically motivated.
