Nissan and Greg Kelly, a former director at the firm who was arrested along with Ghosn but has since been released on bail, were also indicted Friday on fresh allegations of financial misconduct.
Ghosn was initially arrested on November 19 last year for allegedly understating about 5 billion yen (45 million dollars) of his 10-billion-yen compensation during the five years through March 2015.
Tokyo prosecutors charged former Nissan Motor Co.
The 64-year-old was charged on Friday with aggravated breach of trust for temporarily transferring personal investment losses to Nissan in 2008, and for understating his compensation for three fiscal years through March 2018, according to the Tokyo District Court.
However, in one piece of rare positive news for the once-revered tycoon, the Tokyo District Court turned down a prosecutors' bid to prevent family visits, meaning he should be allowed contact with his loved ones.
A request filed the same day by his lawyers to end his detention was rejected. Nissan has also accused Ghosn of misusing company funds, including over homes from Brazil to Lebanon and hiring his sister on an advisory contract.
Last month, he was indicted for under-reporting his income for an earlier period.
Ghosn's lawyers have filed a bail application but acknowledged that his detention would most likely continue until trial.
Kelly, in contrast, was released on bail on December 25 and his lawyer said Friday he has since undergone surgery for spinal stenosis at a hospital in Ibaraki Prefecture and moved to a residence approved by the court.
The arrest and detention of Ghosn, once among the most celebrated executives in Japan, has sparked worldwide criticism of Japan's justice system, which effectively allows suspects to be held indefinitely and questioned without a lawyer present. Prosecutors have the right to appeal to a court to extend the detention.
His wife Carole Ghosn has issued a statement expressing concern over his illness. Suspects are often re-arrested on suspicion of new charges periodically to keep them in custody while prosecutors attempt to build a case, and bail is the exception more than the rule.
"I look forward to continuing to assist Nissan in its investigations", Munoz said in the post.
At the court, Ghosn said his actions were backed by managers inside the company as well as external lawyers. "We are fearful and very anxious his recovery will be complicated while he continues to endure such harsh conditions and unfair treatment".
Visits from lawyers, family and friends are strictly controlled by prosecutors in Japan, making it hard for suspects to establish a defense or give their side of the story to the media.
Renault said in a statement Thursday that an internal investigation found all payments to its board members in 2017 and 2018 were in compliance with the law and "free from any fraud".
According to one of his lawyers, Ghosn developed a high fever earlier this week while in detention, but his health has improved.
