The head of Nissan will leave the post on September 16

The head of the Japanese automaker Nissan Hiroto Saikawa will leave his post on September 16, this was announced during a press conference following a meeting of the board of directors.
It is also reported that the board of directors has previously agreed on the candidacy of Nissan CEO Yasuhiro Yamauchi for the post of head of the car concern.
Since the end of last year, the automaker has been shaken by a series of scandals, which were initially associated with the arrest and unclean financial operations of the former chairman of the company's board of directors, Carlos Ghosn. There is an investigation.
In addition, as previously reported with reference to the NHK television company, it was found that the general director of the automaker received inflated incomes. The company found that six years ago, Saikawa adjusted the date on which stock income was received a day after the exchange rate went up. As a result of this operation, he received 47 million yen (about 440 thousand dollars) more than he should have. And thus a few more people in the management increased their income from the shares of the company.
After that, Saikawa promised to return part of the income from the shares, and at the weekend the media leaked information that the head of the car concern intends to resign.
