Idogawa Ex-Futabamachi mayor “I resigned because I can’t accept 20mSv/y standard. can’t take responsibility for future”

On 1/23/2013, Idogawa, Ex-Futabamachi mayor resigned.

In the interview with OurPlanet-TV, he explained that he resigned because he couldn’t accept the 20mSv/y standard of the government.
He stated, now Japanese government defines residents should go back if the integral dose is under 20mSv/y for the social and economical demand. However, it used to be 1mSv/y in Japan, which is also confirmed in the judicial precedent of the Supreme Court. Even in Chernobyl, if it’s over 5mSv/y, the area was defined to be mandatory evacuation area.
He also commented, he couldn’t let the residents go back to the town because he can’t take responsibility in case anything happens to their health in 25 years.

M. Idogawa Ex-maire de Futabamachi : “J’ai démissionné parce que je ne peux pas accepter un standard de 20 mSv/an. je ne peux pas assumer une telle responsabilité pour le futur”

Le 23 janvier 2013, M. Idogawa, Ex-maire de Futabamachi a démissionné.

Dans l’interview à OurPlanet-TV, il explique qu’il démissionne parce qu’il ne pouvait pas accepter le standard de 20 mSv/an du gouvernement.
Il affirme que maintenant le gouvernement japonais définit que les habitants devraient rentrer si la dose intégrale est en-dessous de 20 mSv/an pour répondre à la demande sociale et économique. Ceci alors que c’est 1 mSv/an dans le reste du Japon, ce qui est également confirmé par les antécédents judiciaires de la Cour Suprème. Même ) Tchernobyl, quand c’est au-dessus de 5 mSv/an, la région est définie comme zone d’évacuation absolue.
Il a dit aussi qu’il ne peut pas laisser les habitants rentrer au village parce qu’il ne peut pas prendre la responsabilité de ce qui peut arriver à leur santé au cours des 25 ans qui viennent.

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.
