Tokyo prosecutors issue arrest warrants for Ghosn, ex-U.S. soldier -Kyodo

TOKYO, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Tokyo prosecutors on Thursday issued arrest warrants for a former U.S. special forces soldier and another person suspected of smuggling former Nissan Motor Co boss Carlos Ghosn out of Japan, Kyodo news reported.

Prosecutors also issued a warrant for Ghosn for illegally leaving the country, Kyodo said.

Ghosn fled to Lebanon, his childhood home, as he was awaiting trial on charges of under-reporting earnings, breach of trust and misappropriation of company funds, all of which he denies. (Reporting by Junko Fujita; Editing by David Dolan and Christian Schmollinger)
