Japan will make its borders stronger because someone on bail escaped the country. Ex-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn fled Japan to Lebanon last week. He was waiting to go on trial for fraud. He escaped even though the police had his passports. Japan said it would strengthen its border checks. It will also review its bail system. Japan has already taken actions to stop anyone on bail leaving the country. Immigration will be stricter.

It is still unclear how Mr Ghosn escaped. Cameras monitored his home 24 hours a day. News sources say he hid in the case of a double bass. He chose an airport where security was not so tight. He then flew from Osaka to Lebanon. Lebanon said he entered the country legally with a French passport on Monday. He has not been seen since. Interpol created a "wanted" notice for him. Japan cannot ask Lebanon to return him.
