Ex-TEPCO execs unlikely to be indicted over Fukushima meltdown

from WakeUpFromYourSlumber:

Japanese prosecutors are expected again not to indict senior executives of the utility operating the Fukushima nuclear power plant with negligence over the facility’s devastation in the 2011 quake and tsunami disaster.

The three former officials of Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) are Tsunehisa Katsumata, 74, company chairman at the time of the disaster, and two former vice-presidents – Sakae Muto, 64, and Ichiro Takekuro, 68.

The Tokyo District Prosecutors Office has been investigating the case after a citizen’s panel ruled in July that the three former senior officers should be indicted over their handling of the aftermath of the quake and deaths and injuries caused by it.

    I can see why the Japanese Gov is hesitant to prosecute those in charge of the Fuk-u-shima nuclear reactors. It was the government itself that did not demand an immediate international group to be formed that would be charged with cleaning up this mess ASAP. People from around the world with expertise specific to such a problem should have been set up, funded, and allowed to formulate and implement the very best and quickest response to this ecological nightmare. Letting it puke highly radioactive crap into the Pacific Ocean and onto the land surrounding the plant was an act of gross incompetence and stupidity, IMO.
