"I will call the Japanese economy minister this morning to request that all information that has been provided by Nissan to Japanese justice be sent to us. So that we understand exactly what Mr Ghosn is accused of," Le Maire said, as broadcast by France Info radio station.
The minister noted that France had not received any information regarding the case so far.
"It is necessary to set up an interim leadership [at Renault] as soon as possible," the minister said, adding that he intended to meet some of the members of Renault's board of directors later on the same day.
The statement has been made after Japanese media reported that Ghosn may have also embezzled money allocated to Nissan's board of directors.
Renault's spokeswoman Astrid de Latude told Sputnik that the company would hold a board meeting late on 20 November.
"A board meeting for Groupe Renault will be held in the evening, I have no more information at this stage but there should be a communication at the end of the board," the spokeswoman said.
The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, which was founded in 1999, is the world's leading car manufacturer, having sold over 10.6 million vehicles in 2017, according to the alliance's official website.
