One of Ex JP PMs Kan filed a suit against current JP PM Abe for defamation of character

On 7/16/2013, one of the Ex Japanese Prime Ministers Kan wrote on his blog that he filed a suit against the current Japanese Prime Minister Abe for defamation of character.

Kan was Japanese Prime Minister in 311.

In the mail magazine of 5/20/2011, Abe wrote it was disinformation that Kan ordered to inject seawater to Fukushima nuclear plant.

Abe wrote Tepco started injecting seawater to Fukushima nuclear plant at 19:04 of 3/12/2011. They reported it to “the official residence” but Kan got “furiously mad” at that. The official residence ordered to stop injecting seawater to Fukushima nuclear plant. Due to the explanation of the experts, Kan finally allowed them to restart seawater injection at 20:20. Abe commented this is based on the several statements of related people.

Abe was demanding Kan to step down for this responsibility.

Kan states this is incorrect. Abe didn’t take back this statement regardless of Kan’s repetitive requests to revise and apology.

L’ex-premier ministre Naoto Kan porte plainte contre le premier ministre Shinzo Abe pour diffamation


Le 16 juillet 2013, l’ex-premier ministre Naoto Kan écrit sur son blog qu’il porte plainte contre M. Abe, le premier ministre actuel, pour diffamation.

M. Kan était le premier ministre du 11-3.
Dans le mail magazine du 20 mai 2011, M. Abe a écrit que c’était de la désinformation de dire que Kan avait donné l’ordre d’utiliser de l’eau de mer dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.
M. Abe avait écrit que Tepco avait commencé à injecter de l’eau de mer dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima le 12 mars 2011 à 19:04. Ils en ont informé la “résidence officielle” mais M. Kan en serait devenu “totalement furieux”. La résidence officielle a donné l’ordre d’arrêter d’injecter de l’eau de mer dans la centrale de Fukushima. Après les explications des experts, Kan a finalement autorisé qu’ils reprennent les injections d’eau de mer à 20:20. Abe a déclaré s’être basé sur plusieurs affirmations de personnes impliquées.
Abe demandait à Kan de démissionner de ses responsabilités.
M. Kan affirme que c’est faux. M. Abe n’a pas retiré ses affirmations et n’a pas tenu compte des demandes répétées de M. Kan de les corriger et de s’excuser.

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.
