Carlos Ghosn’s lawyers are seeking court permission for the ousted Nissan chairman to attend the carmaker’s board meeting on Tuesday, according to a person with knowledge of his plans.

If granted, it would be the first time Mr Ghosn will face his former colleagues at Nissan since he was arrested in November and dismissed as chairman following investigations by Tokyo prosecutors and the company into allegations of financial misconduct. 

After 108 days behind bars, Mr Ghosn, who has denied all charges of misconduct, was released last week on bail under tight restrictions, which includes a ban on having contact with people linked to the investigations. 

Legal experts said the bail conditions will make it unlikely for the Tokyo District Court to grant permission for Mr Ghosn to meet with Nissan executives including Hiroto Saikawa, its chief executive. The court is expected to reach its decision later on Monday. 

Nissan and the Tokyo District Court declined to comment. 

Nissan will hold an extraordinary general meeting on April 8 where it plans to remove Mr Ghosn as director and add Renault’s new chairman Jean-Dominique Senard to its board.
