TOKYO (Reuters) – Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201.T) has canceled the lease to ex-Chairman Carlos Ghosn’s luxury apartment in Tokyo, Ghosn’s legal team said on Friday, as the Japanese automaker cuts ties with the executive following his arrest in November.

Ghosn’s Japan-based legal team received the notice this week, a member of the team told Reuters. Tokyo prosecutors are expected on Friday to indict Ghosn on two new financial misconduct charges, adding to his legal challenges.

Nissan was not immediately available for comment.
