Renault: no wrongdoing by Ghosn in compensation

Following a board meeting, the French carmaker said in a statement Thursday that the preliminary results of a review of Ghosn's compensation for the years 2015-18 showed it was in compliance with French law.

Ghosn, Nissan's former chairman, was arrested last month in Japan. He and Nissan were charged Monday with violating financial laws by underreporting Ghosn's pay by about 5 billion yen ($44 million) in 2011-2015.

While he was fired at Nissan, Ghosn kept his position at Renault, though deputies are filling in during his absence. Renault's board said it does not have "information concerning Carlos Ghosn's defense."
