Former mayor of Futaba Idogawa, “Fukushima citizen doesn’t report thyroid surgery / Pref Gov would cover it up.”

On 5/28/2013, the former mayor of Futaba town, Idogawa attended at a conference in the United Nations Office at Geneva in Switzerland.

It was a side event of the UNHRC on rights to health in Fukushima with Special Rapporteur of Human Rights Council UN, Anand Grover, which was held by specified nonprofit corporation Human Rights Now.

(cf, Special Rapporteur of Human Rights Council UN “Urine and blood test for internal exposure should be conducted” [URL])

In this conference, former mayor Idogawa made this statement.

They have never heard my opinions. To the contrary, the government is trying to underestimate the impact of the accident. I know one of the residents in Futaba underwent an operation for thyroid cancer and this person has not informed the prefecture of it as she is afraid of information cover-up by them.

M. Idogawa, l’ancien maire de Futuba : “les gens de Fukushima ne déclarent pas  leurs opérations à la thyroide / la préfecture va l’étouffer.”


Le 28 mai 2013, l’ancien maire de Futaba, M. Idogawa, s’est rendu à une conférence dans les bureaux des Nations Unies de Genève, en Suisse.

C’était au cours d’un évènement en marge de l’UNHRC sur les droits à la santé à Fukushima avec M. Anand Grover, rapporteur spécial des Droits de l’Homme du Conseil de l’ONU, qui s’est tenu par une association à but non lucratif nommée  Human Rights Now (= Les droits de l’homme maintenant). (cf. Le Rapporteur Spécial des Droits de l’Homme du Conseil de l’ONU : “Des examens urinaires et sanguins sur l’exposition interne devraient être effectués”)

Au cours de cette conference, M. Idogawa, l’ancien maire de Futuba, a déclaré ceci :

“Ils ne m’ont jamais écouté. Au contraire, le gouvernement essaye de sous-estimer les impacts de l’accident. Je sais qu’une des habitantes de Futaba a subi une opération d’un cancer de la thyroïde et cette personne ne l’a pas déclaré à sa préfecture parce qu’elle avait peur qu’ils étouffent l’affaire.

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.
