The court session takes place upon request of Ghosn's lawyers to the prosecutors to disclose the reasons for extending the term of the businessman in custody until January 11.
Ghosn and his lawyer Motonari Otsuru consider the detention unjustified, appealing against Tokyo's court decision.
Ghosn and his right-hand man Greg Kelly were arrested on November 19 on allegations of misreporting Ghosn’s earnings over a five-year period from 2010. Both men have denied the allegation.
On December 23, the court ruled to extend Ghosn's arrest until January 1. The prosecutor's office brought new charges against Ghosn, suspecting him of shifting a personal investment loss worth more than $16 million to the Japanese automaker. On December 31, a court in Tokyo decided to extend Ghosn's detention by another 10 days, until January 11 as part of an arrest warrant linked to breach of trust. At the same time, Kelly was released on bail on December 25.
