TOKYO (Reuters) – Nissan ex-Chairman Carlos Ghosn will hold a press conference in Tokyo at 9 p.m. (1200 GMT) on Friday, according to a person familiar with the matter.

This would be Ghosn’s first press conference since he was arrested in November for financial misconduct and will likely face trial early next year.

He denies the charges and says he is the victim of a boardroom coup, describing former Nissan colleagues as selfish rivals bent on derailing a closer alliance between the Japanese automaker and Renault, its top shareholder.
