On November 19, 2018, he and his former boss, Ghosn, were arrested in Tokyo. While Kelly was staying in Japan, Ghosn escaped to Beirut on a private jet under adventurous circumstances. It was hidden in a chest of musical instruments. A court in Japan last year sentenced two Americans who were extradited to Japan and who helped him in his stunning escape to prison terms. Former elite soldier Michael Taylor is spending two years and his son Peter is one year and eight months old. The two pleaded guilty in court.
Kelly faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. His former boss, Ghosn, denied all the allegations and spoke of a conspiracy against Nissan against him. Ghosn once saved the auto company from near bankruptcy and established an alliance between Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi. Japan has requested his extradition, but it does not have an extradition treaty with Lebanon. Because of the escape, there is no possibility that Ghosn will one day be tried in Japan.
