Michael Taylor and Peter Taylor, father and son, were arrested for helping to smuggle Carlos Ghosn, the former Nissan chief, out of Japan. Michael Taylor is a former special forces officer. A third man, George-Antoine Zayek, is also linked to the crime. The Taylors and Zayek allegedly smuggled Ghosn out of Japan, where he was due to be prosecuted, to Turkey using audio equipment transit boxes on 29 December. The boxes were not checked by security as they were due to be loaded onto a private jet.
