Get those suspended sentences ready! Followed by golden parachutes at jobs at universities or city halls.

Personally I would like government and everyone to focus on the bigger issue - contaminated water and nuclear reactor.

I think the government is ambidextrous enough it really can jail those creeps and work on the reactor and solve the water problem all at the same time. Its really not just two guys sitting in an office. Its a veritable army of people.

A few years before the incident, officials at Fukushima were warned of a tsunami the size of the one that hit, but they ignored the advice because it was too expensive.

No, they did not ignore the warning: they were investigating it, which was a hell of a lot more than anyone else was doing: hence 20,000 tsunami deaths in Tohoku.

understand the people who worked nuclear power. Forecasting the effects of the tsunami at 100% is not realistic.

In Russia, we know what a nuclear disaster is.

 People have sorrow and they want revenge. They can be understood. But understand the people who worked nuclear power. Forecasting the effects of the tsunami at 100% is not realistic.

TIJ,

Suspended sentence.

Trial of TEPCO executives over Fukushima disaster heads to total exoneration and a nice fat package of taxpayers' money to apologise for inconveniencing them. There - fixed it.

Come on - we can't expect the Old Boys' Club to be accountable for anything, surely? Let's remember where we are, people.

Japanese government has appointment right of judges.

and present Abe government support nuclear industries.

They've apologised, shown a degree of remorse, however insincere it may have been; so even if they are even found guilty, expect a token suspended sentence at the most.

Bingo. The Japanese "justice" system at work.

They've apologised, shown a degree of remorse, however insincere it may have been; so even if they are even found guilty, expect a token suspended sentence at the most.

And even then, they'll appeal to a Higher Court which would in all likelihood dismiss the case.

I'm inclined to agree with the professor. It is unfortunate and very aggravating that these men can live a life of luxury while others have had their lives ruined by their negligence and incompetence.
