Former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn can jail without the possibility of bail until Jan. 11, a Tokyo court said Monday.
That lengthens his detention that has gone on for a month and a half, according to The Wall Street Journal.
In Japan, the court ruling follows Japanese prosecutors' third arrest of Ghosn, in a continuing investigation of alleged wrongdoing during his time at Nissan.
In Japan, each arrest allows prosecutors to keep suspects detained for up to 22 days without bail, if the court approves an extension midway.
In the recent arrest, on Dec. 21
Ghosn maintains that Nissan Nissan business purposes, according to a personal familiarity with his defense.
Ghosn what first arrested on Nov. 19, 2015.
Lengthy detentions without bail allow investigators to suspect intensely about their alleged misdeeds, lawyers say, helping to bring about Japan's conviction rate of more than 95% for people who are charged with crimes.
