In an interview with the Financial Times hours before she left Japan on Friday night, Carole Ghosn said her husband's 108-day prison sentence had been "a different person" and that a normal life on bail had not been possible.
"I think the French The government should do more for him I do not think they did enough I do not think he had enough support and he asks for support As a French citizen it should be a right "Ms Ghosn said, repeating the request for support her husband had made last week in an interview with French television reporters.

Mr. Ghosn was released on bail in early March and has been living in harsh conditions for the past several weeks, preventing him from using the Internet except at his law firm. He and his family members were constantly monitored by prosecutors and the media. When rumors about the upcoming backrest of Mr. Ghosn began last week, Ms. Ghosn said of her husband, "You could see the fear in his eyes."
"He had no energy, he told me how he used to jump out of bed, but now he is exhausted all the time," said Ms. Ghosn.
The backrest refers to the claim that Mr. Ghosn has developed a mechanism to pay part of a Nissan daughter's payments to a bank. The Omani trader found his way into spending directly to the former chairman and his family benefited.
Mr. Ghosn has denied all allegations against him.
Renault warned the French prosecutors last week about allegedly suspicious payments in the amount of about 10 million euros to the same Omani distributor, according to persons who are familiar with the investigation. Public opinion in France has shifted as the French car maker also accused his former boss of "questionable and hidden practices" and the company's ethics violation.
The arrest of Mr. Ghosn – his fourth since last November – followed what his wife described as a "devastating dawn in the couple's apartment in central Tokyo last Thursday morning."

The behavior of prosecutors and the detection of the Japanese hostage-justice system, where detainees are often held to confession, have called for uncomfortable international control over Japan in preparing for the admission of the G-20. the Rugby World Cup and the Tokyo Olympics.
However, Mr Ghosn's supporters agreed that the reasons for greater intervention by the French Government would not produce any significant results, especially as Mr Ghosn and Mr Macron had previously argued about the future of the Renault-Nissan alliance.
