Former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn was smuggled out of Japan while under house arrest by hiding in a musical instrument case in a plan masterminded by his wife, a Lebanese TV news channel claims.

The 65-year-old reportedly dodged police surveillance at his Tokyo home with the help of a team of ex-special forces soldiers disguised as a Gregorian music band.

He was then flown to Beirut via Turkey on Monday where he was joined by his Lebanese wife Carole who is said to have coordinated the elaborate escape plot.

Ghosn, who holds French, Brazilian and Lebanese passports, said in a statement that he fled to ‘escape injustice’ in Japan, where he was on bail facing financial misconduct charges.

Strict conditions of his £10.5m bail included being prevented from seeing his wife without the permission of the court and for the past seven months they have been unable to speak to each other at all.

Lebanese news channel MTV reported that a ‘paramilitary group’ had posed as musicians hired to perform at Ghosn’s home, believed to be a £2.7million penthouse apartment, during a dinner party.
