The Lebanese judiciary system imposed on Thursday a travel ban on former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn after his interrogation, local news agency Lebanon 24 reported.

Ghosn's file was referred to public prosecutor Ghassan Ouiedat for a decision.

Ghosn was questioned following an Interpol Red Notice alert issued by Japan seeking to arrest him over financial misconduct.

Nissan accused Ghosn last year of understating his salary while he was the chief executive, and transferring 5 million U.S. dollars of Nissan funds to an account in which he had an interest.

Ghosn held a press conference on Wednesday in Beirut denying all accusations issued by Nissan against him while vowing to fight to prove his innocence until the end.

Ghosn arrived in Beirut from Japan by the end of last month to escape what he called "an unfair justice system."
