    SAPPORO -- Hokkaido Gov. Harumi Takahashi has admitted the prefectural government's involvement in Hokkaido Electric Power Co.'s alleged attempt to manipulate public opinion on a "pluthermal" plan at its nuclear plant.

    Takahashi told a prefectural assembly session on Nov. 29 that she has "decided to accept" a third party fact-finding panel's report, which concludes that an official who headed the prefectural government's nuclear safety division was involved in the case.
