A Tokyo court unexpectedly ruled not to extend the detention of Nissan's ex-Chairman Carlos Ghosn Thursday, meaning he may soon be released from jail where he has been since last month facing allegations of financial misconduct. The Tokyo District Court said it had also decided against extending detention for Greg Kelly, a former Nissan executive who was arrested along with Ghosn on Nov. 19 .It later overruled an appeal by prosecutors against the decision, clearing the way for the possible release of the two men, which public broadcaster NHK said could come as early as Friday. If Ghosn and Kelly are granted bail, conditions may require them to apply for permission to travel overseas. Otsuru left about 90 minutes later and did not make any comment, while Kelly's lawyer was not available for comment.The 10-day detention period for the second allegation ran out Thursday, and the court was widely expected to extend it for at least another 10 days.
