TOKYO (Jiji Press) — The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan said Friday that former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn, who has fled Japan while on bail awaiting trial, will participate in a press conference online on Tuesday.

Ghosn, 69, will speak about a $1-billion damages lawsuit he has filed with a court in Lebanon against the Japanese automaker and others for alleged defamation and falsification of key evidence, according to the FCCJ.

In Japan, Ghosn is charged with violating the financial instruments and exchange law.

His lawyer, Nobuo Gohara, will attend the press conference in person at the FCCJ in Tokyo.
