Gov't, TEPCO mismanaged Fukushima evac: report


  • Gov't, TEPCO mismanaged Fukushima evac: report

    TOKYO -- Poor communication at the top level of government may have delayed the evacuation of residents threatened by radiation leaks from the Fukushima nuclear plant, the Yomiuri newspaper reported on Thursday, citing a panel investigating the crisis.

    It also accuses plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) of misjudgments soon after the plant was wrecked by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, which knocked out reactor cooling systems and triggered meltdowns, the paper said.

    The 12-member panel, set up in May on the initiative of then prime minister Naoto Kan, will release an interim report of its findings on Dec. 26, the Yomiuri said without citing sources.

    It said the panel found that poor communication between the government's crisis management center and decision-making top officials, both housed in the same building, delayed the use of a system that predicts the spread of radioactivity, which could have allowed more adequate evacuation orders to be given.

    1st there was news of a meltdown on Nikkei, followed by "only meltdown could cause nuke plant explosion" by Japan NISA, followed by government implementing article 14 and thus enforcing strict censorship on all the news, where every information regarding the accident was to be confirmed from the government before going public. Then the bullshit started with how tepco is trying to prevent meltdowns that have obviously allready occured.

    The actions of the japan government were deliberate, they knew the extent of the situation but they chose to lie to the people and the world in order to protect  uranium loving cultists.
