TEPCO Execs Trial Starts Over Fukushima Negligence

The trial of three key TEPCO executives who were in charge during the Fukushima disaster began this week. The three are charged with criminal negligence for failing to take known safety measures that could have protected the plant against a large tsunami.

The trial has taken so long to take place after prosecutors in Tokyo refused to prosecute the case. A citizen group had to use a legal maneuver that allows citizens to force a case to trial when prosecutors are unwilling.

As we find any news of the proceedings of the trial we will post updates.

TEPCO executives:
Tsunehisa Katsumata (ex-chairman)
Ichiro Takekuro (ex-vice president)
Sakae Muto (ex-vice president)
