japanese as well so really a global sort of capitalist figure of success like the turner no one thousand nine hundred ninety nine who was there and then he goes to nissan which had just formed a partnership with renault and both of them had things that they needed from the other nissan had a pile of renault had a market or nissan needed renault needed market access that nissan had to the u.s. for example they has with these complimentary things but nissan was in terrible shape it was bleeding money it has for these old archaic business practices a lot of them which were linked to japanese business practices which he came in and ruffled a lot of feathers and said we're going to slash this we're going to cut this we're going to change a lot of this practice and in three years he brought them to profitability again not to while facing criticism for being the outsider but that's how he achieved this sort of legendary status which very few executives have ok now let's talk about these allegations what is the exactly being accused at this moment so from the press conference now that he's being accused of three things one of them is
4:05 pm
misusing company funds another is misusing investment funds. we're with a company and then the other which you're hearing a lot about here is that he was under reporting his salary to basically to financial officials within japan and what we're hearing so far is that the miss report amounts raised it goes up to about forty four million dollars so he earns a compensation eighty eight million dollars over a five year span according to these early reports and he only reported forty four million dollars of that now exactly how one does that and exactly the details of the other charges we don't know yet know. why would you do what you can so much money i mean we don't need her allegations that evidently but i'm just wondering is there more to it than meets the eye i mean obviously we're going to have the details and see what comes out of this but you know going is really known again he's a manager's manager i mean what he did in nissan is studied in business schools around the world for the turnaround that he. did there and you know as someone who has the principles that he has what it says that

a manager should be judged based on what he accomplishes everything that he conscious he believes i'm not going to i would say that it's likely that managers these positions to believe they need to be compensated appropriately for it at the same time there's also been a lot of controversy around his compensation we've known that this is been an issue with him for years and that he thinks he isn't being competent enough and that in two thousand and sixteen shareholders actually voted down his compensation and then he took a pay cut earlier this year in return for staying on another four years so this is been something that's been going back and forth between nissan shareholders and carlos going for some time again we won't speculate why he decided to do it but i mean this is someone who sees success as the marker of how one should be compensated or not right i want to talk about succession as well we're going to have to leave that for the next while it's in the steven pressley thank you so much for shedding light on this developing story for us well next up we are going to have to hong kong where the trial has started against the leaders of large scale pro-democracy protests if convicted they face seven years in prison more than one

a good spirits when we are facing the tile. he expects to be sentenced to seven years in jail john is considered one of the masterminds of the umbrella protests of twenty fourteen the umbrellas are a symbol for passive resistance to the hong kong police during a seventy nine day sit in demanding free or elections. however the protests failed since then the political sands have shifted in the city the government is now taking more action against unwelcome views. human rights groups call it a campaign of intimidation by the chinese authorities. and they're sending a clear signal that the. that the space for civil society to raise sensitive questions about hong kong's future in hong kong is
4:09 pm
is. shrinking. the public prosecutor's office refused to speak to doj chevelle about chance upcoming trial. john himself is pessimistic more protest events have been canceled and a foreign journalist has also been expelled i don't see any of these in the near future that would could get democracy this is the time to be fair and also to defend our existing freedom and rights and we need to strengthen our civil society . john kinman expects to be convicted but for now he runs while he's still free. but just for how long we have joshua along with us now he's the secretary general of the democratic opposition party joshua was one of the leaders of the so-called umbrella revolution back in twenty fourteen of very warm welcome joshua thanks for joining us you were jailed last year for your role in the occupy central
