Ex-Renault CEO Ghosn ready to pay Versailles wedding bill: lawyer

Detained former Renault boss Carlos Ghosn “stands ready” to repay a 50,000-euro ($57,000) bill for his wedding party at the Palace of Versailles, which was waived under a sponsorship deal with the French carmaker, his lawyer said Friday.

Renault disclosed this week that the French chateau had waived the usual rental fee for Ghosn as part of a sponsorship deal between Versailles and Renault, signed a few months before the lavish October 2016 wedding.

On Friday, French financial daily Les Echos and newsmagazine L’Express said Ghosn could be facing new scrutiny over another party at Versailles, a 600,000-euro gala dinner paid for by Renault in 2014 .

Last month Ghosn resigned as chief executive and chairman of Renault.
