TOKYO (Reuters) - The Tokyo District Court has rejected a request by lawyers of Carlos Ghosn to end the detention of the ousted Nissan Motor Co Ltd <7201.T> chairman, who has been held since his Nov. 19 arrest on accusations of financial misconduct, Jiji Press reported on Wednesday.

Ghosn went on the counter-attack the previous day, declaring his innocence before a court hearing in his first public appearance since his arrest.

His current detention period is set to run until Friday.
