It may be thinned by Michael and Peter Taylor, the two brains of this incredible escape, which fear of being extradited to Japan. They are accused of having concealed the former captain of industry in a trunk and having to board a private jet in December 2019. The two men wish to cancel their arrest in the United States and obtain their release on bail, but the justice of the united states does not seem willing to release them, particularly in the light of recent revelations about their financial situation.
As reported by the Echo Wednesday, July 8, Michael and Peter Taylor have received payments that could come from Carlos Ghosn. According to a document received by the court of Boston, and communicated by the justice of japan, in 2019, a whopping $ 862 $ 500 has been paid to the company Promote Fox LLC, which is headed by none other than Peter Taylor and one of his brothers. The transfers have been made from a French bank account in two times.

The second transfer has been recorded on the 25th of October for $ 322 $ 500.
