The court was considering an appeal by prosecutors but Ghosn should emerge from the Kosuge centre in northern Tokyo later Thursday, barring a last-minute hitch. However, it apparently believed that detaining him longer would negatively impact his defense preparation and health. She is mentioned in the latest allegations that centre around payments by an Oman business to operations allegedly run by Ghosn, which reportedly have some links to his wife's business. He said the legal team will work to moderate the restrictions. "We love each other very much, she answered all of the prosecutors' questions in court, and she has done nothing wrong".

He later entered a Tokyo hotel, instead of the designated apartment where he lived with his wife during the previous release.

The Japanese car-maker, which has been struggling to reignite earnings and sales while dealing with the fallout from the arrest of its ex-chairman, slashed its preliminary operating profit for the second time to 318 billion yen ($2.8 billion) for the year ended March, from 450 billion yen. The 65-year-old was then rearrested on April 4.

The prosecutors have told the court that they are concerned about concealment of evidence. Bail will enable him to prepare better for his criminal trial expected later this year, where he will fight all three accusations of financial wrongdoing while in charge of Japan's second biggest auto maker.

Ghosn was freed late April 25 after prosecutors' last-ditch appeal of his release was rejected by the Tokyo district court. Ghosn's lawyer, Junichiro Hironaka, said he had edited out any references to individuals his client holds accountable for the financial misconduct charges against him. Critics say the system enables authorities to hold alleged offenders in hard conditions for long periods of time in hopes of soliciting an admission of guilt.

The outlook for the alliance - one of the world's top automaking partnerships - has been in focus since the arrest in November of its main architect, Carlos Ghosn, on charges of financial misconduct.

Critics also say the practice of prolonging detention by incrementally adding charges enables suspects to be denied the chance to file for bail.

He had previously been charged over allegations he under-reported his salary and sought to shift personal losses to Nissan.

Nissan, based in Yokohama, has declined comment on the criminal case.

According to AP, Ghosn led Nissan Motor Co. for two decades and was credited with steering the success of the global alliance with Renault SA of France and smaller Japanese automaker Mitsubishi Motors Corp.

Before his latest arrest, Ghosn recorded a video in which he argued that Nissan executives either signed off on his actions or were conspiring against him because they feared losing their jobs if the company moved closer to Renault.
