Just for kicks, I looked up extradition policies of the countries Ghosn holds citizenship in and it looks like he's well out of the reach of Japan . . .
From Library of Congress website. N.B. Ghosn is Brazil-born.
According to the Brazilian Constitution, everyone is equal before the law, without distinction, guaranteeing to Brazilians and foreigners residing in the Country the inviolability of the rights to life, liberty, equality, security, and property. The Constitution also provides that no Brazilian may be extradited except for a naturalized Brazilian
, if extradition is requested for a common crime committed prior to naturalization or for proven involvement in unlawful traffic in narcotics and similar drugs, as provided by law. Additionally, no foreigner can be extradited for a political or ideological offense. The Brazilian Federal Supreme Court has original jurisdiction to try and decide extradition requests from foreign States.
Lebanon does not have an extradition treaty with Japan, according to Japan's justice ministry, making it unlikely that he could be forced to return to Tokyo to face trial.
Some countries, such as Austria, Brazil, the Czech Republic, France
, Germany, Japan, Norway, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), Russia, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Syria, forbid extradition of their own citizens. These countries often have laws in place that give them jurisdiction over crimes committed abroad by or against citizens. By virtue of such jurisdiction, they prosecute and try citizens accused of crimes committed abroad as if the crime had occurred within the country's borders (see, e.g., trial of Xiao Zhen).
