Tokyo prosecutors on Wednesday raided the kitchen of the wife of Carlos Ghosn, Carole Ghosn, who is presumed to have cooked lots of meals for the former Nisson boss turned fugitive.

“We’re looking for any evidence in the oven or refrigerator where Carole would have done most of her work,” a chief investigator told reporters.

Japanese media reports said prosecutors had seized pots and pans to track down how she had helped her husband escape.

NHK reported that Ghosn “did not buy an ekiben when catching the shinkansen to Shin-Osaka, we repeat Carlos Ghosn did not buy an ekiben when catching the shinkansen to Shin-Osaka”.

Japanese citizens have reacted to Ghosn’s escape with anger with rumours now circulating that he didn’t take his shoes off before entering the box.

Footage of Ghosn eating while walking to Shinagawa station has also further angered locals, according to the unofficial leader of all gaijin Jake Adelstein.
