A court on Thursday rejected prosecutors’ request to extend the detention of former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn, boosting his chances of eating chicken for Christmas.

The Tokyo District Court also rejected a request to extend the detention of Ghosn’s aide Greg Kelly, who may therefore also be heading for the sweet taste of freedom and the Colonel’s 11 secret herbs and spices.

The decision means both Ghosn and Kelly, who were arrested on November 19, could soon be released from the Tokyo Detention Center after being locked in a small tatami room for one month with Japanese television playing 24 hours a day.

Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa is now shitting himself, as the truth will come out that he was one of the executives responsible for referring Ghosn and Kelly to the police because they were planning on having Saikawa removed from his position.

Ghosn reportedly told inmates he will be ordering a 20-piece bucket meal from KFC for Christmas.
