"This is a conspiracy. this is not about greed or dictatorship, this is about a plot, this about a conspiracy, this is about a backstabbing", Ghosn said in the video.
Ousted Nissan Motor Co boss Carlos Ghosn said he was innocent of all the charges against him and was the victim of a conspiracy, according to a video recorded before his arrest last week and broadcast by his lawyers on April 9.
Hironaka screened the video for reporters in Tokyo.
Ghosn's lawyer Junichiro Hironaka said that the latest arrest was to "apply pressure" upon his client and that prosecutors were taking "cruel steps" to push Ghosn into "incriminating himself into a confession".
On April 4, Ghosn was rearrested by Tokyo prosecutors over new allegations of aggravated breach of trust, related to funds essentially being transferred through a Nissan dealership in Oman and back to himself, causing Nissan a loss of around 5 million USA dollars, according to prosecutors.
The man responsible for the alliance between Nissan and Renault, as well as Mitsubishi, said his love for Nissan and for Japan are undiminished by his current circumstances. His hair appeared greyer and his face thinner than before his first arrest in November.
The conspiracy, he said, was borne out of fear that he would bring Nissan closer to its partner and top shareholder, Renault.
He then lived in a court-appointed apartment in Tokyo without commenting on his situation despite huge worldwide and Japanese media interest in his case that has shocked and surprised from the beginning.
This reportedly cast another shadow of executive uncertainty which contributed to those who Ghosn claims conspired against him.
There has been huge worldwide and Japanese media interest in his case that has shocked and surprised many from the beginning, the AFP reported.
Ghosn's video begins with the suggestion that the clip was filmed in preparation for him being arrested: "If you are listening to me through this video today, it means that I was not able to make the press conference that I planned for April 11".
His rearrest came few days after news that Renault, which Mr Ghosn once headed, had handed French prosecutors documents showing suspicious transfers worth million of euros authorised by the vehicle tycoon. The bullet he saves for the third point: "This is a conspiracy".
Despite her Lebanese passport being confiscated by Japanese authorities, Carole said she was able to use her U.S. passport to board a flight and was accompanied by the ambassador to the airport.
"The idea of his being all alone is really hard to accept", she said.
Mr Ghosn was voted out as director and is being replaced by Renault chairman Jean-Dominique Senard, who joins Nissan's board as vice chairman.
To start the extraordinary meeting, Hiroto Saikawa, Nissan's CEO, bowed in apology.
