Nissan executive on leave for 'special tasks' amid Ghosn's arrest

Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.'s chief performance officer, José Muñoz, is taking a leave of absence from the Japanese automaker to concentrate on "special tasks arising from recent events," Reuters reported, citing a statement released by the company on Jan. 5.

The executive was considered to be a supporter of former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn, who was initially arrested on Nov. 19, 2018, over allegations of fraud and was recently served a new warrant on financial misconduct that extended his detention.

Following the recent management change, Muñoz will not be appearing at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to be held Jan. 8-11, a company spokesman told Reuters.

Muñoz has been with Nissan since 2004 before being appointed in early 2018 as the chairman of the car manufacturer's China management committee that oversees its operations in the country.

Reuters added that Muñoz could not immediately be reached for comment.
