TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese prosecutors have re-arrested Nissan Motor Co’s <7201.T> ousted chairman Carlos Ghosn for aggravated breach of trust, which means he could be detained for another 10 days, media reported on Friday.

The move comes after a Tokyo court on Thursday unexpectedly rejected prosecutors’ request to extend Ghosn’s detention, which raised the possibility that he could go free on bail as early as Friday.
