Ghosn, previously charged with underreporting his salary, has been indicted for aggravated breach of trust and violations of financial law, according to the outlet.
Moreover, Ghosn reportedly failed to disclose $40 million of the salary he received over a 3-year period.
Former Nissan Representative Director Greg Kelly, Ghosn's right-hand man, has been indicted on the same charges, the media outlet added.
Both Nissan officials were arrested on November 19 on allegations of misreporting Ghosn’s earnings between 2010 and 2015. Both men have denied the claims.
On December 23, the court ruled to extend Ghosn's arrest until January 1 in light of new charges brought by the prosecutor's office, which now suspected 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 as part of an arrest warrant linked to the breach of trust. Meanwhile, Kelly was released on bail on December 25.
