There is a massive difference between planned discharges and unplanned ones.

Japan is releasing much more than Tritium into the waters 24/7!

Countries in Asia with territorial disputes with China should probably lodge their suits in the all powerful South Korean courts

I want to say South Korean people don't throw trash in the sea coming to the coast of northern Kyushu where I leave. I don't think it's from N. Korea same character letters.

Too idiotic even for Korean posters to make any comment.

Their home nuclear powerplants, located much closer to Jeju Island, have also been discharging spent water or the large amount of tritium into the sea. How could they possibly tell and prove the water is originally from Fukushima or not?

They can't, that's the point: they'll blame it on Japan knowing full well it's their own toxic waste. Anything to make Japan look bad and themselves look "good".

The Sankei Shimbun reported on its May 9, 2021 edition that the Kori nuclear power plant near Busan in South Korea released 5 billion Bqs of tritium-laced water into the sea in 2018 while Japan's planned release is to be 2.2 billion Bqs over several decades.

I, for one, am opposed to nuclear power plants built anywhere in the world. There are too many unsolved problems inherent in a nuclear power plant other than just how to discharge reactor cooling water. The problem of how to make disposal of spent nuclear fuels, nuclear waste, hasn't been solved at all.

I guess South Korea found a new excuse to protest against Japan now that their own court rejected the claims from the comfort women.
