Fugitive former car executive Carlos Ghosn says he expects to receive a "fair trial" in France. French authorities on Thursday issued an international arrest warrant for the former Renault-Nissan executive who famously skipped bail in Japan and fled to Lebanon in a box. He said he trusted the French justice system to treat him correctly in a clear criticism against Japan.

Carlos Ghosn says he will receive a "fair trial" in France after being issued an arrest warrant. French authorities on Thursday issued an international arrest warrant for the former Renault-Nissan executive. "I think yes, I can get a fair trial," he told CNBC's Hadley Gamble.

The arrest warrant is the latest in a series of charges brought against the company. The charges include misappropriation of company assets and money laundering. The company denies all the allegations and says it will fight the charges. The case is being investigated by the European Court of Justice in Paris.

Ghosn says he learned about the warrant from an American newspaper. He says the timing of the warrant is "suspicious," given the forthcoming French presidential elections. Both President Emmanuel Macron and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen have taken tough stances on CEO pay in the lead up to Sunday's presidential run-off.
