U.S. approves extradition of Carlos Ghosn's accused escape plotters to Japan

BOSTON, Oct 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department has approved turning over to Japan two Massachusetts men to face charges that they helped smuggle former Nissan Motor Co Chairman Carlos Ghosn out of the country while he was awaiting trial on financial crimes.

Lawyers for U.S. Army Special Forces veteran Michael Taylor and his son, Peter Taylor, disclosed the department’s decision in a court filing in Boston federal court as they sought to delay the transfer, which could happen later on Thursday.
