Les services du gouvernement mettent en place un service “d’enquête sur les causes de décès”


En 2012, les bureaux du Cabinet du gouvernement japonais avaient monté une organisation nommée “service de promotion des recherches sur les causes de décès”.

Ceci sur la base des lois de 2012 concernant les recherches des causes de décès. Elles précisent les but, principes, responsabilités gouvernementales, etc, néanmoins elles ne mentionnent aucune action précise à entreprendre dans ce but.
La loi prend en compte les fœtus de plus de 4 mois.
Son président en est le directeur du secrétariat du Cabinet alors que le président de la Commission nationale de la sécurité publique est le premier sur la liste des membres. Il a aussi le titre de Ministre d’état aux Missions Spéciales.
Ce directeur affirme que renforcer le système d’identification des cadavres et la cause de leur décès était “un problème urgent”, néanmoins le contexte précis n’est pas communiqué.

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.
