Carlos Ghosn case: Despite the arrest warrant, "there is a ban on the extradition of nationals".

The French justice system has issued an international arrest warrant for Carlos Ghosn, former head of the Renault Nissan Alliance, and four others, as part of an investigation by the public prosecutor's office in Nanterre (Hauts-de-Seine, France) into charges including misuse of corporate assets, breach of trust and money laundering. FRANCE 24 interviews Aurélien Raccah, a lawyer at the Paris Bar and lecturer at the Université Catholique de Lille's Faculty of Law. According to his analysis of the Carlos Ghosn affair, although the information in the international arrest warrant is transmitted to Interpol, "there is no obligation for States to follow it. So, while it's a legal tool, it will have to be transformed into a political one".
