Tokyo — American Michael Taylor, who bowed in a court in Tokyo on Tuesday, apologized for the escape of former Nissan Motor Chief Carlos Ghosn from Japan in December 2019.
Standing on the podium facing the panel of three judges in the Tokyo District Court, Taylor, a 60-year-old former green beret, answered questions from a defense lawyer and a Japanese prosecutor.
“I deeply regret my actions and sincerely apologize for the difficulties in the judicial process and the Japanese people. I’m sorry,” Taylor told the court.
His voice quivered and suppressed sobbing. After bowing deeply to the judge, Taylor turned around and bowed to the prosecutor.
Under the question, Taylor later added, “That’s the biggest regret of my life.”
