TOKYO: Tokyo prosecutors are likely to indict former Nissan Motor Co Ltd boss Carlos Ghosn on an additional charge of aggravated breach of trust as early as Monday, when his current detention period expires, public broadcaster NHK reported on Friday.

Ghosn was arrested for the fourth time this month on suspicion he had tried to enrich himself at Nissan's expense, to the tune of US$5 million.

He is also awaiting trial on other charges of financial misconduct and aggravated breach of trust. Ghosn, who had been released on US$9 million bail in early March after spending 108 days in jail, has denied all allegations against him.
