Ghosn's Escape Cost His Extraction Crew Their Freedom

Michael Taylor, a former US Army Green Beret, led a team that smuggled Carlos Ghosn out of Japan and back to Lebanon in 2019. Today, Ghosn is safely ensconced in the country of his childhood, which doesn’t extradite its citizens. Taylor and his son Peter were extradited to Japan from the U.S., and pleaded guilty to conspiring to help Ghosn escape. Michael received a sentence of two years while Peter was ordered to serve 20 months in prison. Now, having been released early after a transfer to the US, Michael wants about $3 million from the elusive corporate fugitive. Reed Stevenson reports on Bloomberg Television.
