Tepco is sued for Act for the Punishment of Environmental Pollution Crimes


A citizen’s association “Protect sanriku sea from nuclear contamination” from Miyagi, Iwate and Aomori sued Katsumata, the chairman of Tepco, Tepco and 2 other people for Act for the Punishment of Environmental Pollution Crimes relating to Human Health.

The reason is “Knowing the risk of Tsunami before 311, Tepco did not take any prevention for the nuclear plants to cause a risk of human lives.”

It is the first case to sue them about Fukushima nuclear disaster for Act for the Punishment of Environmental Pollution Crimes relating to Human Health.



  1. I love your work Iori and appreciate your dedication, sacrifices, etc, but sometimes a lot is lost in the translation, I’m sure some of the people on here would be willing to help you proofread your English posts to iron out the rough spots in some of the translations……..

    1. I don’t translate it. I’m not meant to import the Japanese stupidity into my article. I just take the 1% of what really matters and cut off all the irrelevant information only to make it look less severe.

  2. For example: Tepco is sued under the “Punishment for Environmental Pollution Crimes” Act.

  3. they need to add the developers and contractors to the suit , and oversight groups . Toshiba , Hitachi , Areva , and General Electric should be added to the culpable parties being sued .

  4. Good for them. People in the northwest US or California or elsewhere whose farmland has been contaminated should also sue Tepco. In California small claims court, according to a recent article about a woman suing Honda, attorneys are not allowed. This levels the playing field out a little. The maximum limit is $10,000. Why couldn’t a farmer sue for each parcel of land contaminated, looking at one at a time?

  5. I am not shore why I do this, but I had to respond, stange thing, fate.

    One day people would realise the meaning of the power of Beuty and Love, the only entetys that Actualy creates and gives powers.
    Real power, you may cal it Higher consuisnes, I cal it Energy.
    Pure energy.
    The only way to guide it is thru Intent, the mastery of intent is the essens of that power.
    And to live in harmony with others and in ballance with our envirioment is the gateway to Paradise, our Mother Earth.
    The animals and the reat are there already, we have gone astray and have forgotten our own divine powers, there is NO God, because we are Gods. We are solely responsible our self to walk that path to divinity, nobody is there to help, our Mother Earth dont work that way.
    All it entirly up to our self, thru self disiplin and hard work, nothing of any worth come easy.

    Beuty and love, and do notise that in the end of this video its a funeral, thats the way I want do go, the day the transgresion to the other side take plase.

    Its so mutch easyer to destroy than to create, or to maintain a life in ballance. Have no fear of chaos, chaos is not the enemy or evil, chaos is always a transgretional state. Like our childhode world, witch is gone.

    Love you self, gett ridd of the greatest obstacle of them all, the ones we our self create, nobody else.
    The rest is merly challanges, nothing personaly infact challanges rearly are, they are just challanges.
    The road is to love life, love it fully and with the whole hart, and the wolrd wil talk to you.

    Free our mind and your ass wil follow.

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.
