It had been unclear whether Ghosn could attend the board meeting.

But the Tokyo District Court denied the request on Monday, NHK said, stopping what would have been a dramatic face-off between Ghosn and the colleagues he has accused of fomenting a coup.

Some at Nissan had been unhappy with Ghosn's push for a deeper tie-up, including possibly a full merger.

If Ghosn's request had been approved, he would have been expected to dial into the meeting via teleconference, given the conditions of his bail, according to a person familiar with Nissan's thinking.

Ghosn, released last week from a Tokyo detention centre where he had been held for more than 100 days, wants to attend that meeting as a board member, a person with knowledge of his intentions said.

"The proposed arrangement will have no impact on the existence of the (alliance agreement) and the cross-shareholding structure, which will both remain in place", Renault said.

Hironaka said Ghosn would meet the press at an "opportune time", but that it would not be on Tuesday.

Spokesmen for Nissan and Mitsubishi declined to comment on the reported plan, while representatives for France-based Renault could not be reached outside normal business hours.

The current structure is seen as outdated and obscure in its functions, with the carmakers' own investigations having found that former chairman Ghosn had funnelled money from the Dutch units.

"It is extremely disappointing that a long-trusted co-worker of my father's would slander him by claiming falsely that my father does not love and respect Japan", the children - Caroline, Nadine, Maya and Anthony Ghosn - said in a statement signed by all four.

Former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn sits inside a vehicle as he leaves his lawyer's office after being released on bail from Tokyo Detention House, in Tokyo, Japan, March 6, 2019.

He faces three charges of financial misconduct over allegations he under-reported his compensation and sought to transfer personal losses to Nissan's books.

Other conditions of Ghosn's bail include living in a residence monitored from outside by camera. A date for a news conference has not been announced. He already gave several jailhouse interviews to Japanese and French media. Instead, he's relying on an "All-Star" team of lawyers to communicate with the public as they prepare his defense.

"I wonder if Mr. Ghosn has ever had any love or sense of attachment to Nissan as a company", Saikawa said.
