In another bizarre plot twist in Carlos Ghosn’s long-running legal troubles, the former Nissan Motor Co. chairman may be re-arrested on fresh charges just as he was preparing to tell his side of the story.

The drama surrounding the former auto czar reignited on Wednesday when he tweeted that he’s planning to hold a news conference on April 11 to “tell the truth” about accusations against him for alleged financial crimes. Soon after, the Sankei newspaper reported that Ghosn would be re-arrested by prosecutors in Tokyo on a new charge of breach of trust.
