TOKYO (Reuters) - Nissan Motor said on Tuesday it will hold an extraordinary shareholders meeting on April 8 to formally discharge its ex-chairman Carlos Ghosn following his arrest on financial misconduct charges.

The meeting also aims to approve Renault SA Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard as a director, it said.

Ghosn has been charged with failing to disclose more than $80 million in additional Nissan compensation for 2010-2018 that he had arranged to be paid later. Ghosn, swiftly dismissed as Nissan chairman after the arrest, has denied wrongdoing.
