Five-year jail terms sought for ex-Tepco executives over Fukushima nuclear disaster

Five-year jail terms sought for ex-Tepco executives over Fukushima nuclear disaster | 26 Dec 2018 | Five-year prison terms were sought Wednesday for three former executives of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. for their alleged failure to prevent the March 2011 [ongoing] Fukushima nuclear disaster... Tsunehisa Katsumata, 78, chairman of the company at the time of the disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant, and Ichiro Takekuro, 72, and Sakae Muto, 68, both former vice presidents, have pleaded not guilty, arguing the tsunami was unforeseeable and the disaster would have occurred even if they had implemented preventive measures. The three were charged with professional negligence resulting in death and injury by the court-appointed lawyers in 2016 after an independent panel of citizens mandated they be indicted. The independent panel's decision came after Tokyo prosecutors twice decided against charging the three.
