Tokyo prosecutors have decided to indict Nissan as well as its former chairman Carlos Ghosn and another executive as early as next week over alleged financial misconduct, a report said Friday.
The report comes amid speculation that Ghosn and his right-hand man Greg Kelly will face new allegations related to under-reporting of the motor industry titan's compensation.
The pair were arrested on November 19 on suspicion of conspiring to understate Ghosn's pay by some five billion yen (R616bn) in official filings during the five years up to March 2015.
The Nikkei business daily reported Friday that Ghosn and Kelly would likely be indicted on those allegations as soon as Monday, when their current detention period expires.
The daily said prosecutors had decided that Nissan was also responsible for the alleged financial wrong-doing and would bring charges against the firm.
