TOKYO (Reuters) – The Tokyo District Court on Tuesday denied former Nissan Motor Co Ltd <7201.T> Chairman Carlos Ghosn’s request for release on bail after his indictment last week on two new charges, including for aggravated breach of trust.

Ghosn, the once-feted auto executive, awaits a lengthy criminal trial that could be as long as six months away, after his surprise arrest on Nov. 19.
