The Nuclear Agency manipulated testimony of Fukushima workers

Although 8 actual Fukushima workers, including former chief Yoshida, stated that the main steam isolation valves were closed when the 3/11 tsunami hit Reactor 1, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) recoded it as “It is unknown that main steam isolation valves were closed or not.” at the request of Tepco’s head office.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency made the report about the Fukushima accident in August and published it in September. They manipulated the testimony from August.

In August, 8 Fukushima workers testified that two valves were closed when they were question about the emergency condensers when tsunami hit the reactor 1. However, the head office of Tepco required The Nuclear Agency to record “The state of the valves were unknown”, the Nuclear Agency acquiesced to their “request” and made the false report about the accident.

The Nuclear Agency explains that they investigated on the assumption of that they will not disclose the report. They valued the request of Tepco.

There are 20 parts censored/redacted on their report too. The Nuclear Agency again said that it is at the request of Tepco.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
