Posted in: Toyota set to end massive Olympic sponsorship deal; unhappy over how IOC spent funds: report See in context

You are just blaming it on the gaijin: Bach.

Reminds me of fiascos like Nissan, Olympus, and Mt. Gox. The only one held accountable is the foreigner, while Japanese executives often avoid indictment.

Tsunekazu Takeda, former head of the Japanese Olympic Committee, $2 million

Haruyuki Takahashi, former executive of the Japanese advertising giant Dentsu, $8.2 million

Joji Masui, former head of the consulting company Amuse.

Dentsu, ADK Holdings, ....the list goes on and on.

Saga could face a similar disaster to Fukushima, whether due to an earthquake, tsunami, or human error. It's a potential accident waiting to happen.

I just need to transfer the money to their bank account in Thailand to get rich.

Excellent!

They will discover the extent of the ongoing leaks and unfortunate incidents that TEPCO has been experiencing all this time. Negligent errors such as leaving the radioactive waste faucet open need to be addressed and managed effectively.

No TEPCO members have been criminally charged or tried for the Fukushima disaster. While there have been investigations and lawsuits, no individual has been held criminally responsible.

We must demand a trial.

Just one would be enough to force all the truth into the open.

Posted in: Wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant leaked radioactive water, TEPCO says See in context

The execs at TEPCO responsible resigned and faced trial, and TEPCO has to pay for the decommissioning and compensation. That is accountability.

Executives at TEPCO did not face criminal trials for the Fukushima disaster.

Some resigned due to public pressure, while others cited accountability or a desire to facilitate change within the company.

Posted in: Wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant leaked radioactive water, TEPCO says See in context

Remember when Dai-3 melted down and had a massive explosion on live TV?

TEPCO told us it was just water.

Then, when the radiation peaked in Tokyo, TEPCO didn't inform us until over three months later.

And the radiation numbers? They were low because TEPCO was measuring them two meters above ground.

Haven't you learned already not to trust TEPCO?

Posted in: IAEA reaffirms Japan's treated water release in line with standards See in context

This statement is patently false.

That statement is totally true.

South Korea: The South Korean government has repeatedly expressed its opposition to the wastewater release, citing concerns about the potential impact on its fishing industry and public health. In response to the release, South Korea has banned the import of seafood from Fukushima Prefecture and is considering expanding the ban to cover all of Japan.

China: In August 2023, China widened an existing ban on seafood from Fukushima Prefecture to cover the whole of Japan. The Chinese government has also accused Japan of violating "international moral and legal obligations" by releasing the wastewater into the ocean.

Taiwan: Taiwan has expressed concerns about the Fukushima wastewater release. In April 2023, Taiwan's Fisheries Agency issued a statement urging Japan to reconsider its decision to release the wastewater into the ocean.

None of the links you provided support your claim.

The last article made me question your point, but upon further reading, I was saddened to discover that the IAEA were merely observing, not collecting any samples.

The complete history of IAEA actions can be found conveniently on the IAEA website. It is the original source:

This lack of active involvement deviates from the agency's initial promise of providing independent oversight.
