The manufacturer was forced to recall more than one million vehicles past year. It was reported that several employees admitted to the regulators that they had not been following protocol in tests.

Nissan vice president Seiji Honda said the company was reviewing internal systems for its regulatory compliance.

Nissan has announced that it will recall an additional 150,000 vehicles in Japan due to improper testing being carried out during final inspections.

The manufacturer was forced to recall more than one million vehicles previous year after admitting staff without proper authorisation had conducted final inspections on some units intended for the domestic market before they were shipped to dealers.

The report comes amid speculation that Ghosn and his right-hand man Greg Kelly will face new allegations related to under-reporting of the vehicle giant's compensation.

His mother replied by telling him to be careful to which Fields shot back, "we're not the one (sic) who need to be careful". Earlier in the trial, a recording of a jailhouse phone call that Fields had with his mother in March was played in court.

The two were arrested on Nov 19 on suspicion of violating the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, for reporting only 5 billion yen ($44 million) of Ghosn's 10-billion-yen remuneration during the five years from fiscal 2010.

Prosecutors in Tokyo will soon hand down indictments for Ghosn, former Nissan director Greg Kelly and the automaker itself, Reuters reports, citing a report in Japan's Nikkei business daily.

Nikkei said prosecutors appear to be pressing charges against Nissan for not stopping its leader from allegedly stating false information over a number of years.

Ghosn and Kelly's detention period runs until Monday, when prosecutors must decide to indict, release, or rearrest them on new claims.

But since his shock arrest, he has been removed from the boards of Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors.
