İrem UZUN -TDO- MNG Jet, a Turkish private jet operator has said former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn used two of its planes illegally to escape from Japan, alleging an employee falsified records to exclude his name from documents. The company said on Friday it had filed a criminal complaint about the incident, a day after Turkish police arrested seven people, including four pilots, as part of an investigation into Ghosn's passage through Istanbul on the way to Lebanon.
"One employee of the company, who is under investigation by the authorities, has admitted having falsified the records," the company said. "He confirmed that he acted in his individual capacity, without the knowledge or the authorization of the management of MNG Jet. MNG Jet is proactively cooperating with the authorities and hopes that the people who illegally used and/or facilitated the use of the services of the company will be duly prosecuted." The company did not say who was the subject of its criminal complaint, nor who were the named passengers on the aircraft leasing contracts.
