TOKYO: Tokyo prosecutors have asked US authorities to extradite a former US Army special forces soldier and his son, both accused of aiding indicted former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn’s escape from Japan to Lebanon.

The Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office has obtained arrest warrants for the two–Michael Taylor, 59, and his 27-year-old son, Peter–on suspicion of harboring Ghosn, 66, by helping him escape Japan for Lebanon late last year while he was on bail awaiting trial in Japan over his alleged financial misconduct.

US authorities arrested the Taylors on May 20. Peter was arrested just before taking a flight he had booked for travel to Lebanon from Boston via London.
